Experienced attorneys know how long a case will likely take, the complexity of the matter, the amount of experience necessary to accomplish the goals of the client, and the number of court appearances that are involved. Additionally, not all attorneys are the same. The most experienced and successful attorneys tend to charge more for their services.
Sometimes, an attorney will provide discounted rates for cases they really want to work on. Other times, an attorney can provide a discount for cases that are convenient to represent. The most important thing to consider when hiring an attorney is not the cost, rather you should be considering the importance of case and the attorney’s ability to handle it successfully for you.
