How Much Will A Lawyer Cost Me?
How much will a lawyer cost you?
I get this question quite a lot by people calling into the office, asking for my fees in relation to the services that they are inquiring about. This is a reasonable question for anybody to ask who is experiencing legal issues and needs to hire an attorney. Unfortunately, there is no one sticker price for this answer, and the answer can vary from one extreme to the other.
IT DEPENDS ON YOUR CASE. It depends on the complexity of your case, on whether or not the attorney is billing by the hour or is doing a flat-fee rate.
Those combinations of things can determine the price of your situation. According to the courts, a lawyer’s fees must be reasonable. Now reasonable is a very vague term and it could be interpreted many different ways by many different people. So here are some suggestions to determine whether the lawyer’s fees are reasonable:
- Look, to see how long the lawyer has been practicing.
- Look to see if the lawyer has had any disciplinary actions by the state bar.
- When meeting with the attorney, see if the attorney’s paying attention to your situation to your case, to your concerns.
- See if the attorney gives you pros and cons to your case, whether the attorney tells you this could be a good case, or this cannot be a good case and gives you reasons why.
- See if you are going to be speaking with the attorney directly when you call the office, if you’re going to have access to the attorney, or if you’re going to be delegated to speaking to the paralegal working the case or the assistant answering the telephone.
Those are important things for you to consider when you’re meeting with the attorney. Remember that it’s not the most important thing when deciding to hire an attorney to focus on the price, that could be misleading. For example, larger law firms or pricier attorneys do not necessarily mean better attorneys.
The most important thing when picking your attorney and deciding if the fees are reasonable for you, is that you sit down with the attorney, discuss your situation and that you feel comfortable with that particular attorney. That is the most important thing. You want to make sure that you both have a fit and that you are both on the same page, have a good relationship from the beginning and know exactly what to expect from each other.
