Arizona Attorneys Fees Desk Reference (2009) $69*
A desk reference of selected statutes, rules of court, cases and ethics opinions in Arizona
There are approximately 900 statutes and rules relating to attorneys’ fees in Arizona – half of them are mandatory and half are discretionary. Often, attorneys are not aware of and therefore do not request fees to which they are entitled by statute or rule. Awareness of fee sanctions may also have a chilling effect and prevent vexatious, obstreperous, frivolous, unjustified or abusive conduct in litigation.
But you don’t have to spend hours researching all the Arizona statutes and rules. Turn to the Arizona Attorneys’ Desk Reference, the only resource that provides:
A complete cross-referenced index delineating the statutes and rules regarding attorney fees in Arizona
