Orange County criminal defense attorney, Wais Azami, charges fixed Fees. Fixed fee is one which does not change after the agreement. Usually, if there is a change, it must be in writing and agree by both parties.
Fixed fees is great for clients because it prevents surprise bills which can get out of control like in some family law or divorce cases. It's always best to know exactly the amount you will be expected to pay, nothing more.
Flat fees are just another term for fixed fees. It means the exact same thing. Please refer to the Fixed fee definition.
Santa Ana criminal lawyer Wais Azami continually strives to provide affordable criminal defense to his clients.
Only for family law cases! I generally do not charge hourly fees because it can get out of hand for clients very quickly. They are already in trouble with the law, they don't need additional stress. But family law is not a simple case which ends after criminal charges are handled. Family law can drag longer because of property disputes, child custody and visitation issues and spousal support modifications.
Criminal cases are different. For example, a normal misdemeanor may require up to 5 court visits. Each visit may force the attorney to spend 2-3 hours (waiting for court to open or judge to appear keeps the meter going). That could mean at least 12 hours of work. If a lawyer charges $300 per hour, that's $3600 or more! If a client pays an agreed flat rate of $3000, for example, they would have saved $600 AND any amount over 12 hours which the attorney most likely will spend. Financially, it's in the best interest of clients to opt for a flat fee rate.
