If you are involved in a dispute over water rights or want to better understand your rights and how you can legally sell, lease, or share your rights, call A JBER lawyer. An attorney knowledgeable about water rights can advise you on the law applicable to your case and assist you in protecting or disposing of your right.
With water being such an important aspect to everyday life, there are legal doctrines and rules in place to regulate the control of water rights for surface water, underground water and riparian rights. These rules and doctrines may be applied differently state to state. The help of an attorney is always a good idea.
No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.
An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.
Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. 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. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.
Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.
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.
