Summary

ETHICAL ISSUES RELATED TO ATTORNEY FEES

What are the ethical duties an attorney owes to a client relating to contingent fees if worked the case only briefly and obtained a substantial settlement? What ethical duties does an attorney have to fairly charge a client? If attorney fees are awarded by a court in a contingent matter, does the fees need to be shared with the client? If attorney fees are awarded by statute in a case that the attorney prevails, what is the reasonable rate an attorney can seek from the Court? Can an attorney charge one client a different retainer or hourly rate and charge another client a different rate? What ethical duties does an attorney have when an attorney withdraws from a case and seek fees?

Please note: The general concepts discussed in the program are based on the ABA Rules of Professional Conduct, but specific case law referenced in examples will be from Washington State.
