We're responding to what consumers want. And we’re proud to be one of the very few firms in Albuquerque and Santa Fe to do so.

As of March 1, the Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer, PC, became one of the few New Mexico family law firms to offer flat fees for certain cases. Clients can be represented by an experienced family law attorney and no longer have to guess how much it will cost them.

"Law firms typically have resisted doing this because the old school model was ‘bill by the hour’. The consumer never knew what the total bill would be," explained Dorene A. Kuffer, Senior Attorney of the Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer, PC. "We're responding to what consumers want. And we’re proud to be one of the very few firms in Albuquerque and Santa Fe to do so. Our research indicated that people wanted flat fees so they’re not in the dark about how much their case will cost them. So we developed flat fees on certain cases to meet the needs of our clients.”

Essentially, a flat fee payment means that the Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer, PC will charge a single fixed fee for a certain type of case. These include: agreed upon divorce, legal document review, mediation, and domestic violence orders of protection.

"Clients are responding positively because now they know what litigation is going to cost," said Kuffer. "Although the outcome still can't be guaranteed, the final price of legal services is."

The Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer, PC offers a flat fee for uncontested divorces with no children for as low as $3,000. This includes full legal advice, and all legal documentation from beginning through to the final decree. Domestic violence orders of protection hearings cost a flat fee of $2,900. This fee includes full representation at the hearing by a qualified attorney. There are also mediation plans that are as low as $2,000.

"The market has wanted this for a very long time, and we're responding to the consumer where we can. Not every case lends itself to this payment option -- some cases have too many variables and can be more complex," said Kuffer. "But if you qualify for a flat fee case, you’ll know what the cost is going to be before engaging our firm to represent you."
