Board Certified Divorce Lawyers in Las Vegas
Legal Fees and Costs
The amount of cooperation (or lack thereof) between you and your spouse determines the total amount of legal fees and costs in your divorce or post-divorce matter.
Uncontested divorces are always less expensive than contested matters. Contested matters which are settled are always less expensive than going to trial. Cases which do not require experts are always less expensive than those which do... and so on.
A Team Approach
Each member of our support staff is a certified paralegal from an accredited institution. Our certified paralegal staff works under the direct supervision of Las Vegas divorce attorneys Jennifer V. Abrams
, Vincent Mayo
and Robert Cerceo
. Every effort is made to assign qualified staff to experience appropriate tasks. This team approach maximizes efficiency and reduces the total amount of legal fees.
You have numerous payment options for your divorce case. We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards. We will also accept payments or credit card authorizations from third parties, if you have friends or family that would like to assist you.
Initial Retainer Deposits
All divorce cases require an initial retainer, which is deposited into your Client Trust Account. This initial retainer is a deposit for legal fees and costs that are required for your case. As your case progresses, you may be required to refresh your Client Trust Account to keep a positive balance. At the conclusion of your divorce matter, any balance remaining in your Client Trust Account is promptly refunded to you.
Each divorce case requires a unique amount of time and effort. Both contested and uncontested matters are billed at hourly rates for work performed. Learn more about the different divorce types
Divorce cases require certain reimbursable costs. These costs can include filing fees, process server fees, Stenographer fees, legal research and analysis, delivery fees, travel expenses, and other items.
We do not bill for photocopies or postage. Additionally, reimbursable costs are based on the actual cost expended. We do not markup any reimbursable costs.

"Divorce, Child Custody, False Claims of Abuse and Domestic Violence are very serious matters where the truth must come to the surface in the sea of lies from the opposition. Jennifer Abrams is smart as tacks, carries a bull whip and lands on her feet when thrown complicated matters on the fly. I recommend her to everyone. She's not cheap but you cannot afford to be without her as your counsel. She works day and night and does whatever it takes to be ready for court."

"In a time where I felt like I was truly in a bind, Attorney Mayo not only helped me seek out justice through the family court but his services helped me with my family. I was so impressed with his exquisite ability to apply each detail and conflict I had with a correlating court case that it was obvious the amount of time and energy he put into my case. Attorney Mayo was always a phone call or email away and his advice was always appreciated. If I ever need any legal assistance in the future, I will definitely be returning to him."
- Shaun F.
"Attorney Abrams was very organized from the first phone call I had with her. At my first meeting, she was efficient with her questions and had a packet ready which answered many questions I had about the divorce process and how to troubleshoot potential problems during the process. Her rates aren't inexpensive, but if you want to make sure your interests are completely looked after, her expertise is worth it."
