Deposit Fee Agreements
With deposit fee agreements, you and I will agree on a specific hourly rate and you will be required to make an initial deposit with my law firm. After you make the initial deposit, I will bill against the deposit until the funds are depleted. Afterward, you will either replenish the deposit to its original amount or I will bill you bi-weekly.
Lump Sum Agreements
With a lump-sum agreement, you will make an initial deposit, but the cost of your attorney’s fees will be capped at a specific amount, regardless of how much time I spend working on your case. These agreements work out great for smaller cases and cases where investigations are required.
A fee paid to the attorney by the client which ensures 1) that I, the attorney, will be available to represent you, the client; 2) that I assume full responsibility for your case; and 3) it secures my representation for you. Afterward, I will bill you on a bi-weekly basis based on hourly rates.
Contingent Fee Agreements
A fee is charged for the attorney’s services only if the lawsuit is successful or is favorably settled out of court. Contingent fees are typically calculated as a percentage of the client’s recovery. Some contingency fee agreements require an initial deposit to cover the initial investigation to determine if the case has merit to proceed.
Reverse Contingent Fees
A fee in which a defense attorney’s compensation depends in whole or in part on how much money the attorney saves the client, given the client’s potential liability so that the lower the settlement or judgment, the higher the attorney fee. For example, if a corporate client might be liable for up to $2 million and agrees to pay the attorney 40% of any settlement or judgment for under $1 million, then a settlement of $800,000 (40% of the $200,000 under the threshold amount of $1 million).
With a payment arrangement agreement, you will be required to post an initial deposit. Afterward, you will be allowed to make monthly installments while your case is pending.
