There are a lot of factors that lawyers take into account while deciding their fees.
You may find that a certain lawyer who has expertise can charge heavily than others who do not have.
In this case, you might not like to object if you are guaranteed the best result by a lawyer known to be an expert in that particular area.
If a lawyer is an expert in your area, he can give you the maximum result within minimum possible time.
Any lawyer will always have a look upon the complexity and the time your case can take. Your amount is likely to be decided based upon this factor.
A case solving includes a lot of activities like scheduling an interview with all the witnesses, detailed research on your case, finding the arguments, preparing the documents and keeping a track of the case.
Sometimes, the case looks simple but when investigated, it can turn to be very complicated and you are not going to pay any additional feels for that!
So, most of the lawyers have a fee agreement with you.
You should fix a meeting with a lawyer when you are meeting him for the first time. Pay them for the first meeting too.
You can be asked for two kinds of fees. First, ‘fixed fee’ for the case and then, an ‘additional fee’ that is based on the consultation hours.
You can be asked for a contingency fee too. This fee means you will have to pay a certain part of the money that you will get if you win the case.
