The traditional approach to billing for family law services is on the hourly basis. The more hours the lawyer spends on your file, the higher the bill. And the more senior a lawyer is, the higher his or her hourly rate.
With Flat Rate, or Fixed Fee, billing the lawyer gives a fixed quote to do the work agreed upon and that’s that. If it takes the lawyer longer to get the job done – there’s no increase in the fee.
This only works where the service being provided is clearly understood by both parties. And it works really well with unbundled services, such as those offered through The Family Law Coach.
If you want to know what the cost will be before you start the work, this is the way to go.
