Event Description
3.0 Ethics Credit Hours

Attend this class to receive prac­tical advice about developing fee agreements in the District of Columbia and the ethical issues involved. Using sample agreements, our faculty experts will guide you through the requirements of a written agree­ment, including the scope of the agreement; fee structure (hourly, fixed, contingency, and others); handling of expenses; and more. The class will show you how to deal with client files and property in your fee agreements; how to address fees to be charged for the services of associates and legal staff; and other important issues such as termination, withdrawal, and fee dispute arbitration. Course materials include a broad range of sample fee agreements. You also will learn about the implications of In re Mance on flat fees and nonrefundable fees.
