The lawyer’s remunerationThere are different ways in which a lawyer can be paid: it can either be done on a flat rate basis, or at an hourly rate. Additional remuneration may also be decided on the basis of a judicial result. The fees are generally fixed by the lawyer in agreement with his client, and a relative agreement shall be concluded between both parties.

Legal aidIn order to guarantee access to the law for all, the State has set up a legal aid system, which allows those who cannot afford a lawyer to hire one. That is to say that the State will pay part or all of your lawyer's fees, if you are eligible for legal aid. Your eligibility will depend on many criteria, and mainly on your resources.
Challenging lawyers' feesEach client has the right to request conclusion of a fee agreement with his lawyer with a view to protect himself from a possible inflation of the final tariff. In the event of failure to comply with the agreement, the client may initiate a challenge of fees by sending a registered letter (with acknowledgment of receipt) to the Chairman of the Bar Association or to the Consumer Ombudsman.
