How can i reduce my legal fees?
Keep in mind that the actions and/or inactions of the opposing party and the court’s calendar are beyond the realm of your control. Nevertheless, there are a number of things that you can do to reduce your costs in contested litigation:
- Be honest with your attorney at all times. Always remember that anything you share with your attorney is privileged and will not be disclosed unless you approve such a disclosure.
- Provide your attorney with requested items.
- Stay in Contact with your attorney, but don’t overdo it. If you are not returning phone calls, you attorney may have to spend more time than is necessary hunting you down in order to obtain the information they need. Conversely, don’t phone everyday, or multiple times a day, for an update. That unnecessarily increases the amount of time spent reviewing your case and may drive up your attorney fees.
