Guaranteed Low Hourly Rate
Plan attorneys have contracted to charge no more than $125.00 per hour, or 40% off their usual and customary hourly rate, whichever is greater, for legal care that goes beyond the free services described above. In most cases, the attorneys will be able to estimate the amount of hours any given case may consume prior to beginning work on the case. Court costs, filing fees and time charged for travel to and from any courts are additional
Contingency Fee Discounts
Attorneys often work on a contingency fee basis on such cases as personal injury and collections. This fee is usually expressed as a percentage of the amount collected or awarded. In collection matters, your attorney will accept 18% if the case is settled before formal court proceedings begin. After proceedings begin, the fee is 27%. On all other contingency matters there is a 10% discount on the lower of either the state maximum or the attorney’s standard rate.
At a cost of $24.95 per month, the Legal Care Direct™ Small Business Plan is a benefit your business cannot afford to be without. Credit card customers can schedule 12 payments of $24.95 or three consecutive monthly payments of $99.80.
