The Florida Bar places restrictions on certain types of legal fee agreements and requires written legal fee agreements in some instances.     The attorney complies with these Florida Bar Rules.

In general, several types of fee arrangements may be possible, although not all fee arrangements are possible with every type of case.   You will discuss and agree upon a fee arrangement with the attorney before the attorney begins working on your legal matter.

Typical Types of Legal Fee Agreements:

  • Contingent legal fee:   A fee arrangement, in which the fee paid to the attorney is contingent on the outcome of a matter.   Usually this involves payment of a percentage of money collected.
  • Hourly fee:   Based on the attorney’s hourly fee rate, and the time spent on the matter.
  • A fixed fee:   A set fee, determined in advance, for performing specified legal services.
