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 3)


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


Trust your lawyer and follow their advice. Arguing with your lawyer and changing strategies will increase your costs. If you do not trust your lawyer then you need a different one!


Organize your evidence. Keep a journal and update your timelines so that your lawyer always has the most up to date information available.


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