Fees for the client are determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the facts of the case and the work it may entail. Some cases, such as criminal defense, are “flat fees.” Other cases, such as personal injury or employment discrimination cases, are “contingency fees.” Cases such as custody battles, contested divorces or contract work are typically billed hourly. If you are unsure, feel free to ask!
A- Depending upon the type of case a client has, different methods of charging the attorney fee can be used. Some of the more common methods are the following:
- Work hours will be kept, and the client will be charged based upon how many hours are spent on the case.
- The payment of the attorney fee is totally dependent upon the client receiving a recovery. The attorney charges a set percentage of the amount recovered. The client may still be responsible for certain litigation expenses, such as court costs, court reporting fees, medical bills, etc. This information should be discussed, clearly understood and in writing at the time the attorney is hired so there is no misunderstanding at a later date.
- Flat-rate payment methods are used when a single task or goal must be achieved, and the attorney feels this is a better option for the client than charging by the hour.
