Attorney Fees

At The Doyle Law Offices, P.A., we work to ensure that each and every one of our clients receives the most effective legal representation possible for a reasonable fee. We offer different fee schedules and payment options depending on the type of legal services provided.

Legal fees are a serious consideration for most people and our clients deserve to know in advance what to expect their case may ultimately cost. Our clients are educated from the very first meeting how their case will be billed.

Our firm offers several attorney fee arrangements:

1. Contingency Fees

In cases of this nature, the client only pays an attorney fee if there is a financial recovery or settlement won for the client. The contingency fee is a percentage of the total amount recovered. If there is no recovery, then there is no attorney fee.

When is this fee arrangement used?
Contingency fee arrangements are usually for personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice cases. They may be used in certain other litigations depending on the particular circumstances of that case.

2. Flat Fees

A flat fee representation simply means that the client receives a specific, defined legal service for a set fee.

When is this fee arrangement used?
Some examples of legal services that may be billed on a flat fee basis are simple wills, powers of attorney, district court hearings, incorporations, and various document preparation.

3. Fee Deposits

This method of legal fee billing requires the client to make a fee deposit of a certain amount that is held in the attorney trust account. The legal fees are then billed as they accrue against this fee deposit. The client is provided a statement each time this billing takes place. This way, the client is regularly informed of the status of the fee deposit and can track exactly how much the case is costing. There are no surprises.

When is this fee arrangement used?
This fee payment method is generally used in litigation and other types of cases where the time and scope of legal work that will be required is difficult to determine in advance.
