LFSM typically selects specialists for a client based on the specific needs of the case. The firm will first assess the nature of the case and the legal issues involved. Then, they will determine which areas of law are relevant and identify attorneys within the firm who have expertise in those areas. The attorneys with the most relevant experience and knowledge will be assigned to the case.

The firm may also consult with outside specialists if necessary to provide the client with the best representation possible. Communication between the client and the firm is also very important in this process to ensure that the client’s needs are being met and to make sure that the firm’s legal team has a clear understanding of the client’s goals and objectives.

Yes, we do project-based work. This can include a wide range of tasks such as document review, due diligence, contract drafting, and legal research.

LFSM typically forms prices based on a number of factors, including the complexity of the case, the experience and qualifications of the attorneys working on the case, and the amount of time and resources that will be required to complete the work.

One of the most common pricing methods is hourly billing. In this method, the firm will bill the client for the number of hours that the attorneys and support staff spend working on the case, multiplied by their hourly rates. Hourly rates can vary depending on the attorney’s level of experience, the type of work being performed, and the location of the firm.

Another pricing method is contingency fee, which is a percentage of the compensation recovered for the client. This method is often used in personal injury and other types of cases where the client does not have the funds to pay an hourly fee and the law firm only gets paid if they win the case.

A fixed-fee is another pricing method, in which the firm agrees to complete a specific task or project for a set price, regardless of how many hours it takes to complete. This can provide clients with budget certainty and also allows them to better plan for the cost of the legal work.

Retainer agreements can also be used, where the client pays a certain amount upfront and the law firm deducts the hours worked from the retainer. This is a way for the client to have a predictable legal expense and for the firm to have a guaranteed income.

Yes, a client can request to change their specialist in a law firm. However, the process for doing so can vary depending on the firm and the specific circumstances.

In some cases, a client may be unhappy with the performance of their current attorney and may request to have a different attorney assigned to their case. The firm may then assign a different attorney with more relevant experience or expertise to take over the case.

In other cases, the client may have a change in their legal needs or their case may evolve, requiring different skills or expertise. In this scenario, the firm may reassign the case to a different attorney who is better suited to handle the new issues that have arisen.

It’s important to note that a change in attorney may have an impact on the time and cost of the case, and the client should discuss this with the firm before making a decision.

Also, it’s very important for the client to communicate any concerns or issues with their current attorney or the firm, and to work together to find a solution, before requesting a change of specialist.

In any case, the law firm will take the client’s request into consideration and will make a decision based on what is in the best interest of the client and the case.

Yes, clients can request a discount from LFSM. However, whether or not the firm will grant a discount will depend on the specific circumstances and the firm’s policies.

For example, a client may request a discount if they are facing financial hardship, or if they have a long-term relationship with the firm and have provided a significant amount of business in the past.

The firm may also consider offering a discounted rate if the case is particularly straightforward or if the client is a non-profit organization or a small business.

In any case, it’s important for the client to have a clear understanding of the firm’s pricing structure and to have a candid conversation with the firm about their budget and their expectations.

It’s worth noting that some law firms offer alternative fee arrangements such as fixed-fee and capped-fee, which could be more cost-effective options for clients, rather than a discount on their hourly rate.

It’s also important for clients to remember that the cheapest option may not always be the best one and to consider the reputation, experience and quality of the legal services of the firm, as well as the cost.
