  • Legal Fees

    Many people here complain about legal fees. Someone said that the lawyer charged them a $5000 retainer fee and made it seem unreasonable. Law School cost a lot of money; $100,000 just for tuition. Then there is the bar admission and exam costing a couple of thousand dollars to study for. Many students go full time and lose 3 years of pay; the equivalent of about $300,000 in losr pay. Just to become a lawyer costs over $400,000 in actual and potential dollars. A lawyer has to maintain an office and a staff of paralegals (to actually do the work). And for a small price of $5000, someone gets a lifetime green card that allows them to make many times what they could have in their home countries. Lawyers are not doing this line of work for money obviously. I hope people will start giving lawyers the credit they are due and stop complaining about their fees. Thank you.
    These people stop at Nothing !

              I said they are NOT unreasonable. I only said they were worthless before I become a lawyer, but now I think they deserve more than what they are getting paid.

                    You are not paying $40 for a 20 second phone call; you are paying $40 for $100,000 of legal advice; thats a pretty good deal !!!! Fortunately, for me, my company paid my tuition, but I still consider that money from my pocket.
