| Peter M. Bartfeld, Esq.

Cost Savings

The boutique nature of Mr. Bartfeld’s practice allows him to concentrate his energy and resources on the needs of his clients. Professional services are provided at levels comparable to services provided by attorneys at larger New York City law firms. However, the bureaucracy, high overhead and professional overstaffing sometimes found at larger firms are eliminated in the smaller practice setting. Instead of focusing on law firm administration, Mr. Bartfeld is able to concentrate on providing his clients with the best possible professional services.

Mr. Bartfeld’s lower overhead expense structure, and a more efficient method of practice, results in the delivery of high quality legal services at a dramatically lower cost level than is otherwise available at many large New York City law firms. Billing rates for large firm attorneys with backgrounds comparable to Mr. Bartfeld, can be in the range of $500 per hour or more, at the present time in New York City. Mr. Bartfeld’s billing rate is significantly less. In addition, in order to remain as competitive as possible, and to attract business to the smaller firm environment, Mr. Bartfeld often arranges for reductions in the range of 10% off posted billing rates, thereby allowing for even more significant savings on the otherwise very high cost of legal services. Discounts can be even higher during an initial “trial period”.

A final area of savings is achieved in the area of staffing. Matters handled by Mr. Bartfeld are not overstaffed with sometimes inexperienced associates. Matters are handled intensively and efficiently in an effort to achieve the client’s objectives on a timely and cost-effective basis.
