I charge a minimum of $25 for document retrieval, because I have to pay for the document.
I charge $50 an hour for research; the first hour is free, so that I can review your notes, and determine if I can help you. I will document all hours logged, and the research done during that time.
If you are a member of one of the societies in WNY, I can offer you a member discount of $40 per hour.
I require a minimum down payment of two hours. If I have found nothing in that time, I will notify you, and you can determine how you would like to proceed. There is not a refund if nothing is available. I will send you documentation on where I searched, so if you decide to proceed in the future, you do not duplicate the work.
