Representation Agreements

A representation agreement sets out the terms of the relationship between the attorney and the client. The agreement also outlines the fees and compensation that the client will owe the attorney. A clear and well drafted agreement makes sure both sides understand the exact work that the attorney will perform, and lays out how potentially problematic situations will be resolved before they arise. Representation agreements often include terms like how and when the attorney will communicate status updates to the client, and who specifically will perform the work. These agreements can include a wide variety of payment structures, in addition to laying out how other associated fees - such as court costs - will be handled.
