What is flat fee?

Lawyers have different ways of charging their clients depending on what they are being hired to do.  One of these options is flat fees.

Lawyers charge flat fees when they are being hired for standard, routine tasks.  These tasks include creating a will, searching for a real estate title, and drafting a contract.  Lawyers will sometimes also charge flat fees to represent you in straightforward matters, like bankruptcy proceedings or for traffic offenses.

Flat fees often do not include the lawyer's out-of-pocket expenses.  These expenses include clerical tasks such as typing and photocopying.  It is important to ask your lawyer if these expenses are covered in the flat fee.
