Affordable OC Attorney
What is a Fixed Fee?
Orange County flat fee lawyer, Wais Azami, charges fixed fees. A fixed fee is one that does not change after the agreement. Usually, if there is a change, it must be in writing and agreed upon by both parties.
Fixed fees are great for clients because it prevents surprise bills which can get out of control like in some family law or divorce cases. It is always best to know exactly the amount you will be expected to pay, nothing more.
Is Fixed Fee the Same as Flat Fee?
Flat fee lawyer is just another term for fixed fee attorney. It means the same thing. Please refer to the fixed fee definition. Both focus on being affordable attorneys with transparency in their fee structure.
Garden Grove criminal lawyer Wais Azami continually strives to provide affordable criminal defense to his clients in all of OC from Anaheim to Santa Ana.
Do you Charge Hourly Fees?
"Flat fee lawyer" applies only to criminal cases! I generally do not charge hourly fees because they can get out of hand for clients very quickly. Clients are already in trouble with the law, they do not need additional stress.
But family law is not a simple case that ends after criminal charges are handled. Family law can drag longer because of property disputes, child custody, and visitation issues, and spousal support modifications. However, even with hourly fees, I am one of the most affordable attorneys in the area. Garden Grove, Anaheim, and Santa Ana attorneys tend to charge a lot more than other areas. I do not do that. I am here to help clients make their lives a bit easier.
Criminal cases are different. for example, a normal misdemeanor may require up to five court visits. Each visit may force the attorney to spend 2-3 hours (waiting for the court to open or the judge to appear keeps the meter going). That could mean at least 12 hours of work. If a lawyer charges $300 per hour, that's $3600 or more! If a client pays an agreed flat rate of $3000, for example, they would have saved $600 AND any amount over 12 hours which the attorney most likely will spend. Financially, it's in the best interest of clients to opt for a flat fee rate.

Cheap Criminal Lawyer?
While Wais Azami is an affordable attorney in Garden Grove, who wants to warn clients about cheap attorneys. Any attorney who does not value their time, expertise, experience, and/or education, will probably not care about the outcome of your case either. That's why they say, "You get for what you pay." When your record, liberty, or reputation is on the line, it's best not to go with a cheap criminal lawyer who will not go the distance for you.
