Attorney Fees and Agreements

Once you've decided to hire an attorney, it's important that you review any agreements before signing on. Usually, an attorney will have a representation or fee agreement that will outline the terms of the attorney-client relationship and the fees and costs associated with the representation. Representation agreements are important because they will often let the client know how and when the lawyer will give the client status updates, and who will be performing the work. A clear fee structure is important because it outlines the various legal fees and costs associated with the work the attorney and his or her staff will perform, and allows the client to figure out whether or not he or she can afford the attorney. A clear fee structure can also be helpful in avoiding a fee dispute in the future.
