Students provide free and comprehensive civil legal assistance to victims of domestic violence in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. The lawyer`s fees are negotiated between you and the lawyer referred to you. Only the initial consultation fee is paid by the Alabama State Bar. All other fees are at the discretion of the lawyer. When discussing the cost of representation with the recommended attorney, be sure to distinguish between fees and expenses such as filing fees and other third-party fees charged for your case. Lawyers calculate based on the time and type of work, the difficulty of solving the problem, and your needs as a client. The Lawyer Reference Service encourages you to request a written fee agreement before proceeding with legal work beyond the first 30-minute consultation.
