The fees of the firm of Marie Bouchouk are set in complete transparency with the client, after acceptance of our quote by the latter, in accordance with the rules of ethics of the profession of Lawyer.
From the first appointment and after preliminary study of the file, the firm Marie Bouchouk will offer the customer a choice between several billing formulas, focusing on promoting the form of fees the most advantageous for the client.
To specify the terms and conditions for fixing the fees, a fee agreement will be made between the firm of Maître Marie Bouchouk and the client. Three formulas can be proposed:
Fees at the time spent:
Fees will be based on the number of hours the firm handles the file. The amount of the fees will therefore depend on both the time spent and the hourly rate (which depends in particular on the nature of the tasks to be performed).
In this case, a fixed amount is paid for the whole procedure. This fee setting system is particularly suited to cases where the law firm is able to estimate in advance the time required to process the file.
Fees "to the result".
The performance fee is based on a result, that is, on the gain, economy or benefit to the client. It is a supplement of remuneration which is added to the honor to the past time or the flat fee but which can not be the only mode of remuneration. A performance fee is of course due only in the case where the client and the lawyer have previously agreed to it by a written agreement.
Legal Protection Insurance: the Cabinet Marie Bouchouk invites you to check if you have a legal protection guarantee attached to one of your insurance contracts. If this is the case, the firm's fees will then, in whole or in part, be borne by your insurer, within the limit stipulated in the insurance contract. This coverage by the legal protection insurance does not, however, call into question the freedom of choice of the lawyer by the client.
Compensation and reimbursement of fees: the Code of Civil Procedure (Article 700) and the Code of Criminal Procedure (Article 475-1) provide for the possibility for a court to order the opposite party to reimbursing you partially or in full for the fees and expenses incurred in court proceedings.
