Attorney Earned Flat, Non-Refundable Fee

The Indiana Supreme Court has agreed with a hearing officer and entered judgment in favor of a solo practicioner alleged to have charged an unreasonable fee in a criminal case.

The client was charged with felony drug dealing.

The attorney charged a non-refundable flat fee of $10,000.

The hearing officer found the fee was reasonable and earned. The attorney had devoted about 20 hours to the case before he was fired by the client. (Mike Frisch)
