Will the Best Attorney be the Most Expensive One?
Hiring a lawyer can be a difficult and imposing process. There are many attorneys available to handle almost any type of claim, and the fees they charge can vary significantly. Is there a direct relationship between the cost of legal counsel and the quality of the representation you receive? To get the best lawyer, will you have to pay the highest price?
Not necessarily. Attorneys, like other service providers, often base their fees on supply and demand. They have a limited amount of time to offer potential clients. If they are in demand, it’s likely that they will charge more for the limited amount of time they have. Typically, as attorneys gain experience and reputation, the demand for their services increases, and the fees they are able to charge go up.
Not all attorneys, though, are looking to maximize their revenue. Many perceive that they are already well-paid for what they do, and strive to get the results you want as cost-effectively as possible. After all, there’s not a lot of benefit in charging you exorbitant fees if you can’t pay them. Lawyers don’t want to spend their time trying to collect from their clients.
On the other hand, you don’t want to simply shop for the cheapest lawyer, as you may get what you pay for. Attorneys who promise to handle your legal issues at extremely cut-rate fees are typically running a volume business. They won’t have the time or the inclination to familiarize themselves with the unique details of your case, but will probably just go through the motions.
