Our standard fee for consultations, assessments, attending meetings and phone calls is $200 per hour. We realize that seems high, but there is a great deal involved in this work. However, the Rubino family has bewen educated primarily by the Christian Brothers since they immigrated from Italy to the United States in the early 1900s. The Christian Brothers believe that everyone is entitled to an edcaution regardless of their economic status. The Rubino family believes the same thing that every child is entitled to an education regardless of their family's economic status. Therefore, we do provide a sliding fee scale. We look at the work that needs to be done and the family's economic resources and develop a plan that will work for the family. So please do not be afraid about the standard fee, if you cannot afford it, we will help develop a plan that is affordable. Also do not be ashamed or embarassed if you need financial assistance. Everyone needs help from time to time..
