What is a Retainer Fee?

A retainer fee is a deposit of funds paid to the Firm in advance.  The retainer fee will be held by the Firm in a trust account. The fees and expenses incurred that are related to the client’s case will be billed against the trust account, usually once or twice a month.  When the fees and expenses are billed against the client’s trust account, the client will be sent a request to replenish the client’s trust account.  The client is expected to replenish the trust account to a predetermined minimum balance (most often the original retainer amount) each time the fees and expenses are billed against the client’s trust account.  A retainer replenishment request will be sent to the client identifying the replenishment amount that is required.
