I am an spanish attorney and its usual we ask this money in advance
Usually we ask 30 / 50 per cent
Ask for a signed contract with him and ask for the bill of sums given
But he has the right to ask for the money in advanced and its ussual to do it
If the decision is in my favour could costs be awarded or will that have been decided in the original court verdict?
The judge will tell who pay the cost of the procedure
If they have to pay by judicial order you will get your money back
So if costs are awarded I could recover my fees from my solicitor?
Sure, that it is how it works
You have to wait until the decission of the judge
Just to clarify please - you may ask for 30/50% of your expected costs or of the likely settlement? I am being asked for 30%+ of the settlement.
Its a good agreement for you
30 per cent its a good account, he is honest with you
Sorry I don't think I made that question clear. Is the request for fees calculated on his expected costs or my expected settlement?
Well, 30 per cent if you win could be a little expensive, but i do not know what the matter is
In all cases its legal
You could ask for several budgets in order to be sure
but if you trust the attorney I recomend you to go ahead
Thank you for your assistance. I am in a better position to discuss it with him when I visit. Adios!
