Our rates start at $200/hr with a $1000 minimum.  Clients can cap us at any amount they are comfortable with.  The cap acts as a “do not exceed” amount, after which DDC will generate a report.  The report will contain a section on recommendations (if any), which the client may wish to consider for further research.
