What does it mean to receive legal advice?
Legal advice is feedback from an attorney based on both experience and training. Lawyers have a detailed knowledge of the law and their advice comes from years of schooling and learning about various components of the law. Legal advice also applies to the specific laws that are related to your issue or questions.
How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?
There is no standard fee that applies to all situations. Some lawyers charge clients per hour while others demand a flat fee. There are also lawyers who work on contingency, meaning they do not get paid until you win your case. This is typically a practice of personal injury lawyers. However, the longer a dispute lasts, the more you are likely to pay in attorney fees.
What else to lawyers charge for?
Lawyers may charge additional amounts to their billable hours. These fees can apply to court filing fees, travel expenses, cost of investigators, paralegal hours, and the hiring of experts. There could even be charges for postage and various types of paperwork.
