Why Flat Rate Pricing?

A Win-Win for Lawyers and Clients

When Is It Not Appropriate?

Many kinds of legal work are not appropriate for flat rate billing. A product liability case could be settled tomorrow or it could take seven years of trials and appeals. Researching an issue could take two hours because the answer is in an authoritative textbook or it could take 15 hours.

FlatLaw is a collection of services offered by lawyers who have identified discrete legal tasks. If you have work that is outside of the scope of a FlatLaw service listing please contact the lawyer to see what they can do for you.
