Is it worth spending money on a lawyer at all?
Yes. If you can avoid a hopeless process through legal advice, the advantage is obvious. If you win a process with legal assistance, the opposing party is usually obliged to reimburse the costs. Those who have legal protection insurance enjoy this cost protection. Anyone who wants to conclude an important contract should also seek advice from a lawyer. This saves costs and hassles and gives the security of a balanced result.
Are legal fees regulated by law?
Yes. The legal basis for fees in Germany is the Lawyers’ Fees Act (RVG). It differentiates between fixed fees and frame fees. Fixed fees mostly apply to legal activities in civil, administrative and labor law. The law provides framework fees mainly for extrajudicial activities and for the areas of social and criminal law.
The fees for advice and for the provision of legal opinions are subject to the agreement between the lawyer and the client. In individual cases we will make specific suggestions for you.
