New Appellate Contingent Fees, Disbursements and eLaw

Recently all four of the appellate divisions in New York adopted a new, mandatory rule governing contingent fees in personal injury cases, but not medical malpractice cases. Be sure to review your current fee agreements to ensure that they are up to date, and that they include the two options for a client to choose from on how they wish to handle reimbursements. Because eLaw includes client matters on our invoices, your eLaw subscription streamlines assigning any reimbursable expenses.
