From the first appointment and after preliminary study of the file, the firm Laurence Morel Rager will offer the customer a choice between several billing formulas, focusing on promoting the form of fees the most advantageous for the client.
A fee agreement will be established between the firm Laurence Morel Rager and the client in order to materialize the service offered by the firm as well as its method of remuneration, the form of which may be:
Fees at the time spent:
Fees will be based on the number of hours the firm handles the file. The amount of the fees will therefore depend on both the time spent and the hourly rate (which depends in particular on the nature of the tasks to be performed).
In this case, a fixed amount is paid for the whole procedure. This fee setting system is particularly suited to cases where the law firm is able to estimate in advance the time required to process the file.
The "result" fee.
Where the firm and the client have expressly provided for this in the fee agreement, additional compensation, based on obtaining a specific result for the client, may be added to a "minimum" fee. Based on a package or a quota of hours. However, the performance fee can not be the sole mode of remuneration of the lawyer.

If this is the case, the firm's fees will then, in whole or in part, be borne by your insurer, within the limit stipulated in the insurance contract. This coverage by the legal protection insurance does not, however, call into question the freedom of choice of the lawyer by the client.

In civil matters, this compensation is provided for by Article 700 of the Code of Civil Procedure and in criminal matters by Article 475-1 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
