Fort Worth, TX, March 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Beginning in March of 2008, Price Law Firm will be one of the first law firms in Fort Worth to offer a flat fee payment option. The firm will initially offer clients the option to choose either paying the traditional hourly fees for services or flat fees which are determined individually for each case after an initial consultation.
The flat fee requires a payment in advance for specified services. A flat fee is based on the services to be rendered and their complexity. Once set, flat fees do not increase. However, additional fees may be charged to pay for services not included in the original agreement. “Many clients prefer the flat fee arrangement because they know at the beginning what their financial commitment will be,” said Dick Price of Price Law Firm.
Under the traditional hourly fee system, clients maintain a specified level of retainer that is billed against until the matter is completed. Monthly statements are sent out specifying the work done and hours expended.
With either approach, the services are spelled out in a written agreement. Both options are discussed with prospective clients and they choose the plan they prefer.
The flat fee payment option has become more popular among attorneys nationwide in recent years because it is a more customer oriented payment plan.
