Understanding the law of attorneys` fees can be time-consuming. Failing to understand that law, however, can be even more expensive.
From general advice on recording time, "billing judgment" and "reasonable hourse," fee agreements, and apportionment, to responding to an application for fees and evidentiary hearings, ethical rules governing attorneys` fees and technical requirements of entering into fee agreements with clients, this manual provides the nuts and bols details of what you need to do to recover fees.
This manual provides essential information on specific areas of fee recovery, such as litigation with government agencies, sanctions and punitive fee awards, equitable doctrines, attorneys` fees as damages, and recovery of costs for non-lawyer services. In addition, there are comprehensive chapters covering family, probate and construction law.
