Cease and Desist

Cost to get a cease and desist order.

Someone has been calling my job phone and leaving abusive messages

Matthew S.

Answered Oct 29, 2021

The cost depends on exactly what you want. If you want a simple cease and desist letter, I would charge as quoted below. If you want steps beyond that, I may have to charge an hourly rate. $300/hr.

Contract Agreement

New York

Asked on Sep 7, 2021

How to determine jurisdiction for lawsuit?

I have a promissory note written in Montana that was breached. I am in New York. I am the borrower and my aunt is the lender; I have since discovered she wrote the note with unfair terms. I need the note voided. What do I do? I can’t find an attorney anywhere to take my case.

Ramsey T.

Answered Sep 14, 2021

Hi - what does the contract say? We are looking for the choice of law clause. If the contract provides for NY choice of law then fantastic! You hire an attorney in New York, send them a demand letter and file in a New York State Court - on the day after the expiration date for your letter. Once you get your judgment in New York, you hire a collections attorney in Montana to go collect your judgement (if they won't pay up - its amazing how much they are willing to pay when you get a local lawyer to put a lien on their house!) If the choice of law clause says Montana - you can (i) be certain and hire a lawyer in Montana and follow the same process or (ii) be aggressive, hire and file in New York, just to ensure that they have to hire a New York lawyer to get the case dismissed. The second situation would be if you think they would rather settle with you than pay someone in New York to get the case dismissed. There is a lot of strategy to consider - but the most important thing in any of this is to be decisive and move forward with a lawyer quickly once you decide on a course of action. I've seen clients who had stronger cases lose in the end because the other side was aggressive in Court and had their lawyer on a retainer immediately and filed before my client could finish "considering her options."

Litigation

Retainer Agreement

Maryland

Asked on Jul 5, 2022

either in a flat fee or with a retainer, do attorneys charge for wait time in court/travel time to and from?

Have a protective order hearing coming up. I have the option of using a lawyer with no retainer agreement, but a deposit and an hourly rate or one with a retainer deposit and an agreement. In either case, is wait time in court charged at the hourly rate?how about travel time?

Michael T.

Answered Jul 19, 2022

Generally speaking, we charge for all time spent on a file. If I'm away from my desk for your case, then I can't work on other cases. So, yes, a five-minute hearing in court might result in a two-hour bill, because that was two hours dedicated to your case. That's why lawyers like to schedule multiple cases for the same hearing: we can pro-rate the travel and waiting time over multiple cases. Flat fees do not normally get a charge for travel or waiting time, because that time is included in the flat fee. A lot of judges start their hearings by "calling the docket" (bringing up each case one by one) and getting time estimates; then calling the cases beginning with the shortest time estimates. Some judges leave all the cases without lawyers to the end. This results in (A) the people involved in cases without lawyers see how it's done; and (B) the lawyers spend less time sitting around waiting and go back to being productive.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
