Lawyers live by giving legal advice against money and representing clients in courts and/or authorities. The amount of the fees is regulated by a statutory fee code, the Lawyers' Compensation Act (RVG). Information on the calculation of lawyers' fees in both civil and criminal matters can be found on the pages of the Federal Bar Association >> Link
Amount of fees:
In civil matters, the so-called dispute or dispute is usually Value of the subject-matter is the basis of assessment for the fee to be paid to the lawyer. The exact amount of the fees is often difficult to estimate. This is due to the fact that the RVG is aware of a wide range of facts, which trigger fees and often the value in dispute is not easy to determine.
We charge our fees according to the RVG if we have not entered into a written fee agreement with you, which is common in criminal matters. We are happy to make such an agreement; an hourly fee or a fixed flat rate is also possible. Please contact us. Such a fee agreement must take into account the scope of the activity, but also the degree of difficulty of the case.
Legal protection insurance:
Please note that the mandate relationship is exclusively between client and lawyer. As a result, even if you have legal protection insurance, you are in principle our contractual partner and are therefore in principle obliged to compensate for our remuneration, regardless of how the legal protection insurance behaves towards us.
It is definitely worth spending money on a lawyer! If you can avoid a hopeless process with the help of a lawyer's advice, the advantage for the client is obvious.
If a lawsuit (whether as a plaintiff or defendant) is won with the help of a lawyer, the opposing party is obliged to reimburse the costs. Those who are covered by legal protection receive their costs from this anyway and have no own cost risk.
All this saves costs and hassle, so the service of a lawyer is very promising.
