Fees
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    Hourly rates for lawyers have gotten out of hand. At some firms, lawyers are charging over $1,000 per hour. At a rate of $1,000 per hour, a lawyer should be able to tell you the secret of eternal youth. But fee structures are not the only problems at law firms. At many firms, especially large firms, there are too many people working on a case. As a result, there is inevitable redundancy with several attorneys billing for the same work. Often, inadequately supervised associates run amok, billing many hours for which the client receives little value. Klein & Wilson's small firm structure gives clients more value for their litigation dollar. Moreover, Klein & Wilson's billing rates are a fraction of the firm's competitors. Klein & Wilson is willing to consider alternative billing methods such as flat fees and contingency fees. Flat fee arrangements are ideal for clients who have a limited budget they cannot possibly exceed because of their own financial issues. Under a flat fee billing arrangement, Klein & Wilson will quote a flat fee for specified work, and the client must pay for out of pocket expenses such as court filing fees, witness fees, and transcript costs. In cases where (a) the client's compensatory damages unquestionably exceed $2 million and (b) we can confirm the target defendant has sufficient assets to satisfy the anticipated judgment, Klein & Wilson will consider accepting a case on a contingency fee basis or a modified contingency fee basis - where all or a portion of Klein & Wilson's fees are based on money collected in settlement or after a trial. Klein & Wilson will accept cases on a contingency fee basis when the client advances all expenses (e.g., expert witness fees and deposition costs). Before calling us to discuss a case you want handled on a contingency fee basis, please read this article. https://www.kleinandwilson.com/Media/How-to-Interview-an-Attorney-to-Handle-a-Business-Dispute-on-a-Contingency-Fee-Basis.pdf Feel free to discuss with Klein & Wilson which fee structure works best for you.
