Q: Lawyers are so expensive, but I really need the help! Do you have any tips on how to save money in legal fees? (Part 2)


A: In the legal world time really is money. Most Law firms bill in 6 minute chunks of time.


Stay out of court wherever possible. Using alternate dispute resolution options such as mediation, arbitration and settlement conferences are faster, cheaper, and may lead to better results.


Get an experienced lawyer. They can move your legal matter forward in as strategic a way as possible to avoid extra costs. Including which battles are worth fighting and which are better to let go.


Be honest with your legal team about your concerns, they should work with you to find solutions.
