Are you confident about how your lawyer is billing you? Do you know how you will pay for your divorce? Is it by the hour, like most firms, or flat fee like at Barkus Law? Here are some concerns we have about lawyers that bill by the hour:
Retainers – You give a lump sum to a lawyer. Do you know how you are being billed against your retainer?
Multiple Lawyers – If one lawyer drafts something, and another lawyer reviews it, are you paying for someone to fix the other typos?
Court/Mediation – Are you paying for more than one person to represent you in a court session or mediation? Are you paying for multiple people to discuss your case, without actually contributing to it?
Divorce can take a life of its own if you’re not prepared, and if you don’t know the right questions to ask. Learn more about our flat-fee billing and how we have you pay for your divorce at BarkusLaw.com.
