The cost of hiring a lawyer to represent you in an examination under oath (EUO) can vary widely based on several factors. These factors include the complexity of the case, the attorney's experience and expertise, and the geographical location. Additionally, legal fees may be charged on an hourly basis or as a flat fee or as a contingency fee.
Hourly rates for lawyers can range from a few hundred dollars to several hundred dollars per hour, and the total cost will depend on how much time the attorney spends on your case. Some attorneys may offer a flat fee for certain services, including representation at an examination under oath. In some cases, the attorney will accept representation on a contingency fee basis.
It's important to discuss the fee structure with the lawyer during an initial consultation and to be clear about what services are covered by the fees quoted. Lawyers will require a retainer upfront before they begin working on your case, if representation is accepted on an hourly basis. When representation is accepted on a flat fee basis, the flat fee will be required to be paid up front. If representation is accepted on a contingency fee basis, that means that the attorney will collect a percentage of any recovery as a fee. This percentage is usually 33%.
To get an accurate estimate of the cost for representation in your specific situation, it's recommended to contact local attorneys, discuss the details of your case, and obtain fee quotes from them. Keep in mind that legal fees can vary, and it's crucial to choose an attorney who not only fits your budget but also has the relevant experience and skills to handle your case effectively. This is particularly true in the case of examinations under oath, as EUOs can often make or break a claim.
