We do not charge for the first consultation to review and discuss your research problem with you and to make sure we clearly understand what you want us to accomplish. Once the scope of the project has been decided the fee is $28 an hour.
This is the start of all big projects. It includes reviewing the client’s existing documents by conducting the preliminary research to support the information the client has provided and continue to work towards the research objective(s) the client has requested. An hour is usually allotted for this step.
