Helpful Info

Though the answers to most questions vary based on the specific circumstances involved, we will try to give you general answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:

  • Chances are, the answer is yes.  The legal process can be very complicated and The Koenig Law Group has the experience and expertise to navigate these matters.

  • We work on contingency, hourly, and flat fee bases, depending on the type of case.

    Hourly fee:
    On an hourly fee basis, fees are based on an hourly rate for services rendered. A detailed, itemized bill will be given to you showing all work done on your case. This explanation may come monthly or at the end of your case. Unless otherwise agreed, the hourly fee basis will be the presumed fee arrangement.

    Flat fee:
    On a flat fee basis, your legal fee is a stated sum for agreed upon services. No accounting will be made.

    Contingency fee:
    The Koenig Law Group agrees to work on some cases on a contingency fee basis. In this type of arrangement, your legal fees will be based on the amount of recovery; no recovery, no fee.

    In all cases, The Koenig Law Group will prepare for you an employment agreement setting forth the fee arrangement.

    The Koenig Law Group makes every effort to keep legal fees as reasonable as possible. The amount of services required, however, is not fully within our control. To help keep costs under control, the Koenig Law Group discusses with our client options for services and the benefits of services.

  • There are some matters which typically require payment in advance of a portion or all of your expected attorney fees before The Koenig Law Group would be able to either take action on your file or become the attorney of record for you in a case. The amount of a retainer varies widely based on the type of case and circumstances involved. That amount would be discussed with you at the time of meeting with Mr. Koenig.

  • Areas of practice by the Koenig Law Group can be found on the Services page.

  • If you have questions whether we can handle your case or dispute, please contact me.

  • Maybe, maybe not. I am a solo practitioner, which means that as a client of the law firm all of your legal work will be performed by an attorney. It will not be handed off to paralegals & legal assistants, or pushed down to junior associates.

    If I cannot provide the legal services you require, I am often able to provide a referral or point you in the right direction.

  • It is the rare case where free legal forms found online will provide the complete solution to a legal issue. Forms found or purchased online (as the purveyors themselves often point out), are no substitute for legal advice and the counsel of an attorney.  In addition, forms found online may or may not be well drafted, up-to-date, legal in your state, suitable for your particular circumstances, or sufficient on their own to achieve your goals.  Even if all these requirements are met, filling in the blanks or executing the document incorrectly can render it ineffective, unenforceable, or worse.

    You should be aware that there is a wealth of misleading, incomplete, outdated, and incorrect legal information on the internet.  Finding an answer online doesn’t mean you have, or have correctly interpreted, the right answer.

    Attorneys not only carry out legal requests properly, but also act as a sounding board and advisor based on education, training, experience, and know-how.
