Costs vary by type of lawyer, so review our attorney fee schedule to find out the average cost of hiring an attorney in Florida. All the work we do for you will be done through a contingency fee agreement. This means that you will not make any payments to us until we have resolved your case. Our fees and any expenses are paid at the time your case is successfully resolved and come from settlement money.
It's not an easy question to answer because every case is different. There are misdemeanors, different degrees of felonies, life crimes, first degree felonies, second degree felonies, third degree felonies. It all depends on the nature of the charge and how much work the lawyer will have to do. In general, here at Lopez& Rossi, I will give a discount on the rate if the person can pay everything at once.
If they can't, we'll usually offer a payment plan and can discuss it at the initial consultation. In advance, hiring a lawyer costs you nothing. We work for you on a contingency fee basis, which means you don't pay attorneys' fees or costs unless we make a recovery for you. If the lawyer charges less per case, there is a good chance that the lawyer has a large number of cases to generate income and will not be able to pay much attention to your case.
All Florida attorneys must put their contingency fee agreement in writing for each client to sign. All relationships between business users and independent lawyers appearing on this website shall be governed by the individual letters of commitment provided by each attorney. If the lawyer is working with a fixed fee agreement, the client will not have to pay more to talk to the lawyer. Generally, in a brain injury case and in all personal injury cases, Florida lawyers charge a contingency fee.
The cost of talking to an attorney varies and depends on how the individual lawyer decides to bill their clients.
