What are the average billing rates for lawyers?


Answer by  Mia20 (150)

The hourly rate billed by an attorney is different based on the type of work performed. Criminal defense lawyers charge more than divorce attorneys for example.


Answer by  patti (29325)

There are many types of legal practices and many types of clients. There is no one "average" rate that everybody or every entity is billed. Many factors are involved in determining how and what a law practices bills a specific client.


Answer by  ncgirl (120)

Depending on the region and the practice area, the average billing rates for most attorneys is $75-$125 per hour. Some attorneys may bill as high as $225 per hour.


Answer by  patti (29325)

Attorneys bill either by the hour or they have a set fee for a particular matter. These amounts vary dramatically depending on the location of the practice (within the US), the type of case, the reputation of the law firm and the experience of the attorney in the specific matter.

This completely depends on the area of law, your location, and the experience or reputation of the lawyer. It can be a flat fee, depend on winning, or be $100-$1000/hr.
