There's an old joke that is passed around. "Why are lawyers so expensive? Because they are worth it!" (Ba-doom tis!) The reality is though, that is 100% an accurate statement. Sure, the joke is that you're getting out of something you probably shouldn't have gotten in to to begin with and now, the attorney will use their expertise to help you get out of it. We hear week in and week out with Shon however though just how much education is needed, as well as continuing education and support staff. Getting you out of the pickle is only part of the price.
Week in and week out the proof is right here. Getting caught in a legal mess is not only the last place you want to be, but getting the bill run up on you is only going to add insult to injury. This week, Shon is sharing how her office as well as most other incredibly reputable other attorneys structure their fees so there are no surprises for the clients they serve and that disclosed pricing isn't an issue down the line in the process of resolving a case. Beware though, it's not a "trap" but making sure you read and understand the fee agreement is essential. Knowing terms like "retainer fee" and what that means along with some other key terms Shon points out this week. Take a listen.
