The legal profession is in crisis and respect for lawyers seems everywhere in decline. This is largely due to how lawyers bill their clients and lawyers' denial that improper billing practices are causing the destruction of the profession. Fair Deal for All Clients is dedicated to improving the image of lawyers by educating the public about how lawyers bill clients and by convincing lawyers that their billing practices are harming the profession. This book gives concrete suggestions on making clients more knowledgeable about billing practices, teaching lawyers to recognize improper billing practices, and having bar associations provide ethical guidelines to ensure that billing statements are honest. Every client and potential client should read this book to learn how to negotiate fair retainer agreements to protect themselves from unreasonable billing. Every lawyer and law student should read this book so that they can contribute to preserving the legal profession through proper hourly billing practices.
