The Cost of Hiring a Bush & Bush Attorney in Texas

It is normal to be very concerned about the cost of hiring a good lawyer. Everyone wonders about it, and it is an early topic of conversation when a potential client contacts our firm. The short answer is: the more fighting in your case, the more it will cost. That said, most cases fall within a range based on the several factors outline below. We bill hourly or in a personal injury context we charge nothing and bill on a contingency fee. We approach our billing in a way that is more transparent, honest and fair to you than other firms. When you hire an attorney at our firm, you will be required to pay a non-refundable retainer. This is an upfront fee that ranges in price according to the complexity of your case. This payment is then placed in your trust account. Your attorney’s hourly rate, along with any court costs or additional fees will be deducted from the trust. If, at the conclusion of your case, there are unused funds in your client trust, you will be refunded this amount. Retainer fees usually range from $3,000 to $20,000 or more depending on the complexity of your case. The retainer amount is set by the complexity of the client’s case and the level of conflict involved, as well as the client’s ability to pay ongoing fees.
