The most common types of legal fees are hourly fees, flat fees, and contingency fees.
Hourly fees are just that – we work for a pre-determined hourly rate on your matter and send you a bill at the end of the month or sometimes every 60 days.
A flat fee is exactly as that sounds as well – a pre-determined rate for typically a simple transaction such as a real estate closing or preparation of a Will.
A contingency fee means that we don’t get paid unless there is a recovery on your behalf. Typically, contingency fees are applied to personal injury matters.
At MCLC, we work with you to determine the best fee arrangement for your matter. We put that agreement in writing so there are no surprises along the way.
If you have questions for one of our lawyers at MCLC, just reach out.
