Maryland Legal Fee Defense Lawyers Serving, Baltimore, Annapolis & Washington, D.C.
Hiring a lawyer can be a tough decision, not to mention an expensive one. Lawyers have ethical obligations that preclude them from making an agreement for, charging or collecting an unreasonable fee or an unreasonable amount for expenses. In considering whether a lawyer’s fees are fair and reasonable, one should consider the following factors:
- the time and labor required, the novelty and difficulty of the questions involved, and the skill requisite to perform the legal service properly;
- the likelihood, if apparent to the client, that the acceptance of the particular employment will preclude other employment of the lawyer;
- the fee customarily charged in the locality for similar legal services;
- the amount involved and the results obtained;
- the time limitations imposed by the client or by the circumstances;
- the nature and length of the professional relationship with the client;
- the experience, reputation, and ability of the lawyer or lawyers performing the services; and
- whether the fee is fixed or contingent.
If you have been sued by your former lawyer for legal fees or are receiving threatening letters from your former lawyer, you may feel uncertain as to how to proceed or scared about facing them in the courtroom. If you are having such feelings, you are not alone. At Henderson Law, we regularly represent clients that have been overcharged by their former lawyers or need assistance with responding to threatening letters from their prior lawyers. As part of representing the Client, Henderson Law, individually and often with the assistance of an appropriate legal expert, will assess whether your former lawyer has committed malpractice or charged you an excessive fee for the services provided. We will also counsel you as to the steps to take, given the amounts at issue and the strengths of your claims against your former lawyer.
We know that finding a lawyer willing to represent you against your former lawyer can be very difficult. We are willing to take the time to discuss your matter with you and to see whether our firm is a good fit for your legal needs.
