Some lawyers charge hourly fees. These attorneys bill a client for the actual time they spend working on a particular matter, at a defined hourly rate. However, the law recognizes that many people are not in the position to pay as they go. Due to the potentially high cost of litigation, the law allows attorneys to offer contingent fee agreements to clients. Contingent fees eliminate the need for clients to finance a lawsuit up front as the lawyer only gets paid once the case has been resolved.
