Flat Fees: The Way Forward

  • Posted by: Ashling Soares

Would you buy a house, a car, get a haircut or pay for any other service without knowing how much the total cost is? Of course not. When you go to a mechanic to get your brakes fixed, they don’t tell you “We charge $100 per hour.  We don’t know exactly how long it will take and how much it will cost, but we’ll bill you for our time when we’re done.” So why do many, if not most, lawyers bill clients by the hour, leaving the total cost completely up in the air? Not to benefit clients – that’s for sure.

At Ashling Soares Law, we decided that enough is enough, and ditched the billable hour altogether. In doing so, we are benefiting clients, in several ways:

  1. Avoiding unwanted risk by knowing the total cost for each task/phase of your case in advance
  2. Motivating your attorney to work quickly and efficiently
  3. Preserving trust
  4. Enabling frequent communication without worrying about the cost

Don’t let an attorney limitlessly bill you by the hour. Contact Ashling Soares Law today!
