Billable Hour Model

Lawyers generally charge an hourly fee.   The number of hours worked is multiplied by the attorney’s hourly fee to come up with the total cost for a particular case or project.  Usually, hourly billing is used for well defined specific types of work.  Hourly billing is also used by attorneys working for big corporations and companies.  Court filing costs, long distance telephone charges, transportation costs, photocopy charges and all other charges may be added to the fee.  The hourly rate of attorneys will vary depending upon his or her experience and the particular line of service.
