Legal representation can be very expensive. This makes the process of hiring an attorney stressful. At the same time, lawyers perform a very valuable service and most cases require that a great deal of time and resources be devoted.
Accordingly, at AI Law, we believe that for the attorney-client relationship to be a successful one, the fee arrangement must be fair to both the client and the attorney.
We recognize that no two cases or clients are alike. That is why AI Law will work with you to determine the fee arrangement that is best tailored to meet the needs of your case. This arrangement can take one of the following forms:
Fixed Monthly Retainer Fees
Hybrid (Contingency Plus Monthly Fee)
Certain cases—particularly those which are expected to last more than six months with an extensive amount of hours and resources required of counsel—need creative fee arrangements that are fair not only to the client who may not be able to afford to pay hourly fees, but also to the attorney who carries great risk to his or her business in taking on such matters. In these types of cases, AI Law encourages clients to negotiate hybrid fee arrangements whereby clients may pay a fixed monthly fee accompanied by a contingency fee percentage of the potential recovery.
