Hourly Rate Billing
Most legal matters are completed with an attorney charging an hourly rate, although fix price services are available for some tasks, as you can see from our website. An attorney will bill for each hour (or portion of an hour) when work is completed on the file. An attorney with more years of experience will charge a higher hourly rate, as that attorney will need to spend less time on an issue than an inexperienced attorney. Along the Wasatch Front, hourly billing rates are generally $200.00 to $375.00 per hour, depending on the type of case and the experience of the attorney. You should discuss hourly billing rates with one of our attorneys during your initial telephone contact and/or at your initial consultation. Hourly billing rates at Spencer & Philpot, LLC, run between $195.00 per hour and $300.00 per hour, pending on which attorney you work with and the type of work involved.
