What do legal services cost?
There are various fee arrangements depending on the matter:
On an hourly fee basis, fees are based on an hourly rate for services rendered. A detailed, itemized bill will be given showing all work done on your matter. This explanation may come monthly or at the end of your case, whichever way you choose to be billed. Unless otherwise agreed, the hourly fee basis will be the presumed fee arrangement.
On a flat fee basis, your legal fee is a stated sum for agreed upon services.
On a contingency fee basis, your legal fees will be based on the amount of the recovery; no recovery, no fee. You may have the option of choosing this plan in lieu of hourly charges. Not all cases qualify for the contingency basis.
In any case, an agreement will be prepared setting forth the fee arrangement.
