For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case.

Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
