California State Bar Flat Fee Agreement

Posted by Josh On September - 13 - 2021

Additional fees may include a separate fee if the case moves to a preliminary hearing and another fee for the main hearing. This is a milestone approach. Before the new rules come into effect, amend your flat fee agreement to prepare for the changes: however, a flat rate agreement is subject to rules 1.5 (a) and (b) with respect to an unscrupulous fee. Section b lists the factors determining an unscrupulous royalty. Point 3 of the factors is `the amount of the fee in relation to the value of the services provided`. Therefore, if you charge a high fee for a case and it is settled without much work, you may find that you have violated Rule 1.5.
