HOW ARE FEES DETERMINED ?
You are a new client?
At Berniaud Avocat, all new clients are received in our offices for a first meeting so they can meet with the attorney(s) who will undertake their case.
The purpose of the first meeting is to meet each other, to define the clients’ problems and needs, and determine the type of services they expect.
In agreement with the client, the firm can determine the fee structure best suited to the case. A fee agreement is then written and signed by both the attorney and the client.
A retainer fee is required at the beginning and invoices may be sent periodically based on the advancement of the case or procedure.
The firm also deals with clients as part of legal protection, legal aid, or when employers pay for the firm’s fees.
