Hybrid and Suit Fees

Excessive legal fees should not stop a client with a good case from retaining Mr. Relkin. David H. Relkin often offers clients hybrid fee arrangements whereby he is paid a reasonable lawsuit fee or reduced hourly rates in addition to receiving a percentage of damages collected. In addition, he offers attorneys' fee arrangements whereby the client pays an agreed amount for a project or is assured of a cap on legal fees. These flexible legal fee arrangements often make the difference between bringing a case which one might otherwise drop and prove themselves to be mutually beneficial to lawyer and client.
