Hourly Retainer Agreement Attorney in New Jersey
An hourly retainer is offered to clients on certain matters because our clients understand that a contingency fee is not available. There are certain cases were we are required by rule to charge an hourly rate, such as family law, and defense matters.
We also charge an hourly rate, which is offered on matters where the firm has been retained to negotiate, counsel or draft documents, and is required for defense matters when our clients are being sued. Hourly legal agreements also require our clients to pay costs. We are negotiable with our clients on the down payment, or retention fee, charged. Hourly rate clients are charged monthly, unless otherwise agreed.
