In today’s economy, everyone needs to cut back on costs. Large corporations are laying off thousands of employees as profit margins shrink and litigation costs rise. Lowering legal costs is a great way for large companies to save thousands of dollars that would have otherwise been wasted. On the other side of the spectrum, if you are the owner of a small business, a lawsuit can seriously threaten the very existence of your company. Small business owners need protection against the large fees involved in litigation, and this is exactly what you will find in our members’ section.

Lowering Legal Costs E-Book
This E-Book is a comprehensive manual taking you through the litigation process and detailing the most important ways you can save money on attorneys fees during each phase of the litigation process. This Guide alone will save you thousands of dollars on attorneys fees.
The Guide will tell you how much you should be paying for litigation support like paralegals, how much of a discount on attorney hourly rates you can expect, what you should be paying for legal research, and which billing practices are ethically disapproved by the American Bar Association, just to name some of the valuable insight you will get from this Guide. The Lower Your Attorneys Fees Guide will let you know what kind of deal you are getting from your attorney so there are no more guessing games.
Our SAMPLE RETENTION LETTER
As an appendix to the E-Book, you will have our sample retention letter. A retention letter details the obligations of attorney and client prior to the attorney’s engagement. The Sample Retention Letter includes information on 25 deal points that can be negotiated with your attorney or law firm before they render any services. Knowing which expenses to negotiate (and how to negotiate them) before the onset of any litigation costs will ensure you don’t get nickel and dimed to death during the course of litigation.
For example, did you know that some attorneys charge clients for their meals in certain circumstances? Some attorneys even try to get away charging clients for four star meals, complete with wine and all the trimmings. Even though it may seem insignificant, charges like this can add up, and we will show you how to eliminate them.
The Lower Your Attorneys’ Fees SAMPLE LITIGATION BUDGET
Did you know that attorneys frequently prepare litigation budgets at the request of their clients? A litigation budget is useful to companies because it has the effect of reining in legal fees by having attorneys predict the amount that litigation will cost.
Our sample budget, an appendix to the E-Book, will give you an idea of what to expect from your attorney in this regard. The sample budget contains typical litigation costs. You can use our sample budget as a benchmark to compare with your attorneys budget, or you can even present our sample budget to your attorney and have them simply make changes to it as necessary.
The Lower Your Attorneys’ Fees SAMPLE BILLING GUIDELINES
Billing guidelines are used by savvy companies in order to detail exactly what an attorney can bill for and exactly how much they can charge. Billing guidelines are extremely effective in reducing your attorney’s fees, since they provide rigid requirements for your attorney to follow. In other words, they detail what you will pay for and what you will not pay for.
Our billing guidelines cover how invoices should be handled, how the case should be staffed, and what expenses the client will pay for. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Our detailed sample billing guidelines (attached as an appendix to the e-book,) do all the work for you and have every expense covered, so you will not have to pay for additional costs after the fact.
