How Much Does a Civil Litigation Lawyer Cost?
Any business involved in a business dispute will reasonably be concerned with the costs of hiring a lawyer. Knowing the potential costs of lawyer ahead of time is crucial to knowing if and how a business dispute can be resolved.
There are essentially 4 ways a lawyer can charge a client for legal service:
- By the hour;
- Flat fee;
- Contingency fee; or
- A blended fee comprising some combination of hourly, flat and contingency.
Traditionally, hourly is the most common form of attorney billing. However, anyone who has ever hired an attorney by the hour knows how quickly a legal bill can get out of hand. For this reason, we have structured our legal fees around the mantra of doing well by doing good. Put another way, if we can earn a decent living helping our clients, we can continue to be there to offer legal services to others.
With that mantra in mind, we work closely with each of our business clients to structure a litigation budget which may include any or all forms of attorney compensation. It is always our first priority to act in the best interest of our clients. That priority is just as true in the consideration of how much we charge as it is in what we do and say in the courtroom.
If you have questions or concerns regarding our legal fees, we urge you to contact The Law Offices of Robert J. Nahoum, P.C. today by calling 845-232-0202.
