COSTS AND FEES
Payment for attorneys' professional activity
is made in accordance with the statute governing
lawyers' fees (RVG) either according to statutory
scale or as an agreed flat or hourly rate.
According to the RVG, initial advice may cost
EUR 190.00 plus expenses and VAT. If you do not
have insurance cover for legal costs, we can offer
you initial advice for a fee of EUR 100.00. Those
receiving social security benefit, unemployment
benefit "II", and those on similarly
low incomes have the right to claim state assistance
for legal advice (Beratungshilfe). Recipients
are only required to pay the lawyer 15.00 EUR.
Information as to the conditions for claiming
assistance for legal advice may be obtained by
phoning our office and is of course free of charge.
Please feel free to enquire as to costs for advice
when making your appointment.
