One of the biggest misconceptions people have about hiring a lawyer is the cost. Many times, lawyers think that the general public is are of the different payment structures for attorneys. At Rob Levine & Associates, it is our job to be your advocate. And as such, we want you to have all the information you need to make an educated decision on how to proceed in your case.
Hourly Fee System
For law offices that do not work on a contingency basis, the most common system is an hourly fee. In those cases, the lawyer will ask you for a sum of money upfront, called a retainer. The funds, which can be anywhere from $1,000 -$10,000, will be placed into an escrow account. The lawyer will then bill against that retainer using an hourly rate, which can range anywhere from $200 to possibly $600 per hour. As this lawyer performs work, you will be sent bills that indicate the transfer of funds from the escrow account to the operating account. At this point, the lawyer has now earned the hourly rate.
At Rob Levine & Associates, we talk a lot about our Fee Free Policy. This refers to the way we bill our clients. We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we do not collect an upfront payment and you never pay an hourly fee. Your payment is based on our personal injury, medical malpractice, veterans disability, or social security disability attorneys winning your case.
