A Few Words About Our Fees

Any prudent person is naturally concerned about what a particular service may cost them. Because there is no “one size fits all” way to address your individual circumstances, we cannot quote you a fee until we hear the facts of your case. Please call 479-1400 to schedule a no-cost consultation so that we can learn about your case and give an estimate of the fair and proper fee for your case.

Setting a fair fee in a particular case is an attempt to balance how much attorney time and staff time the case will likely require, and what the associated costs will likely be. Fees and costs are usually kept track of and charged separately, although there are some exceptions. There are three basic ways that fees can be determined.

  • Contingency Fees

A contingency fee is a percentage of the settlement or award, and is taken at the conclusion of the case. It is usually calculated on the gross amount of the settlement or award, before the costs are deducted. Because contingency fees do not require the injured victim to pay the attorney’s fees up front, they give a wider access to justice for people that could not otherwise afford to use the courts to resolve their claims. Contingency fees are commonly used in all kinds of personal injury and malpractice cases.

  • Flat Fees

Clients often like flat fees, because they are uncomplicated and give certainty to the situation. Flat fees may be quoted for many routine types of legal problems, such as uncontested divorces, traffic tickets, criminal defense where a plea bargain is anticipated, drafting contracts or wills, etc. Sometimes flat fees are all-inclusive, and sometimes the flat fee covers only the attorney’s fee, and costs are paid on top of that. At Andrews Law Firm we always try to be very clear on that distinction, so that neither party is surprised or upset.

  • Hourly Fees

When the amount of attorney time and staff time the case will likely require cannot be easily estimated in advance, or the costs are highly variable, attorneys will ask the client for a retainer. This means the client will pay a lump sum of money to the attorney up front, and the attorney will place the money in a trust account. Then, as the work on the case is actually done and the costs are actually incurred, the attorney can provide a detailed accounting and transfer money from the trust account to his general office account. If the matter can be concluded before the client’s retainer is used up, the balance is typically refunded to the client. If the matter is more complicated or protracted than the original estimate, the client may have to make additional deposits to the retainer held in the trust account.
