Attorney Fees Disputes and Trials
If you are questioning someone’s attorneys’ fees in an estate, a trust, or a probate dispute, you are going to be entitled to a hearing. For good or for ill, attorneys’ fees disputes have turned into mini-trials. You need to present evidence. You need to call witnesses who will testify. You need to prove or disprove that the work that was performed was reasonable at a reasonable hourly rate. Knowing how to defend attorneys’ fees, and also knowing how to try to have attorneys’ fees reduced, is a unique sub-specialty of probate, estate and trust law. Find somebody who has actually defended, prosecuted and been involved in attorneys’ fees disputes and trials.
