"Why are my Legal Fees So High?"

I hear people complain all the time about the amount of money that they have spent on attorneys. They make the attorney out to be a villain, someone that scammed them out of a bunch of money and overcharged them excessively. These people often don't realize or admit that they themselves might have something to do with how high their legal fees are. In this blog post I am going to discuss some of the things that clients do to drive up their costs: 1. Being high maintenance. Clients that call every day (or several times a day) to ask the status of their case and to ask questions or tell their attorney something usually get a rude awakening when they get their first bill. Attorneys charge by the hour, which means that we charge you for EACH phone call. We will let you know when something is happening in your case, so you don't have to call and ask all the time. Also, when you do call us, write down all the questions you have so you can ask them all at once. We don't charge you per question, just per call.
