Fee disputes and lawyers’ handling of fees consistently account for many issues between lawyers and clients and complaints against lawyers by state discipline authorities. Most of these problems and complaints can be avoided or mitigated through more careful drafting of fee agreements, better client communications, and a better understanding of the rules of professional conduct applicable to the handling of clients’ funds and property.
This webinar will explain how the fee agreement can be drafted to avoid common problems but to establish clear, fair terms of the representation and set the tone for a successful attorney-client relationship, proper billing and timekeeping procedures, and handling trust account funds.
