Rates Information

The fee for the services of Chuck Kahn is similar to that of the most highly respected and experienced attorneys at top law firms. Often there will be no charge for a brief initial phone call of inquiry. The fee is charged for time in advance preparation, including pre-hearing phone calls and meetings, the review of documents and submissions and the entire time the parties are present in person or by Zoom for the dispute resolution procedure.


There is never a charge for travel to meetings within Milwaukee County or any County contiguous to Milwaukee, for the use of A Neural View’s warm and welcoming arbitration suite, or the plentiful snacks that that become a trademark of meetings and hearings at A Neutral View.
