Payment Plans:

What kind of money am I going to have upfront to hire you guys? If you have a job or a credit card, we ask for half of the quoted retainer. When you’re serious and ready to proceed with your case, putting SOME money down lets us know you’re serious. When you are serious and ready to go, so are we.

If you have any billing or legal service statement issues, Attorney Mark Mullen, President and founding member of the firm answers the phone….always. He does the books, issues the checks and makes the financial calls on your case. If you call the main number, it will be him you talk to, period.

We encourage payment plans. Most of our clients are not rich and therefore cannot put down the entire amount of the retainer at the time of hiring. Mr. Schlough typically requests that half of his fee be paid up front and the remainder can be set up on a payment plan. Below you will find a list of the minimum fees charged by Attorney Schlough for different criminal charges. His fees vary from case to case but this is a good estimate of what the minimum fee Mr. Schlough would charge will be for your case. Mr. Schlough does not include the cost of a trial in his initial fee. Most people don’t go to trial and he believes it is unfair to charge you for services you do not receive. Mr. Schlough typically charges between $1000-$2000 per day of trial should your case go that far.

Attorney - Scott Schlough
” Back in December 2012 I was charged with a 2nd offence D.U.I. due to a vehicle crash I created while driving drunk. The next morning after being let out of jail I went across the street to Mullen, Schlough & Associates. I presented my case to Attorney Scott Schlough and Attorney Mark Mullen.  They took action right away, both Attorneys filed a motion with the DMV of Wisconsin to preserve my drivers license. "
