Attorney fees are expensive. What can seem like a simply legal matter can often balloon into a larger-than-expected bill for attorney fees as the case gets more complicated or the other side puts up a good fight. The amount of the legal bill may seem outside of the client’s contract. But, while there may be no avoiding the bill, there are ways to help keep the fees lower than they otherwise would be. As an added bonus, the same tactics which can help keep your fees lower can often help your attorney be more effective.
