We accept nearly all legal forms of payment, such as: bank deposit or wire transfer; credit cards; cash (in U.S. dollars or other fiat currencies such as euro, Swiss Francs, and British Pounds); gold, silver, and other precious metals; diamonds and other gemstones; Karatbars; and in kind (real estate, automobiles, etc.), depending upon the needs of our clients and the circumstances.
Fees may be value based, hourly, fixed according to services to be provided, or contingent. The specific fee will vary depending upon the particular matter to be handled for each client, taking into consideration factors such as: time, novelty & difficulty, skill required, amount involved, responsibility, & preclusion of other employment.
Criminal cases are generally charged by fixed fee plus costs. Contingency fees are generally limited to credit card debt settlement: the fee is a percentage of the gross recovery (before deduction for expenses) & the client is liable for expenses and a fixed monthly fee regardless of outcome.
Mac and TFI Founder and Director Dan Pilla have worked together on complex civil and criminal tax cases for nearly three decades.
In complex cases, we generally charge a flat fee just to accept responsibility for the case, & in addition requires a retainer which becomes a credit to the client’s account at the hourly rates. Clients must read & understand the contract before signing. A written contract is mandatory. Understand your obligations.
