CHAAAA-CHING!!!!!

Posted by Seeking Solace |

I just got a call from the attorney who took over one of my cases two years ago. He called to tell me that the parties reached a settlement and I should recieve $1500.00 in attorneys fees!!!!


SWEET!!!!!!!!!

Whoo hoo!!!!! Don't spend it all in one place! Unless of course that one place is Ann Taylor! :-P

Wait... I'm clueless about this stuff... Does this mean that lawyers do not get paid until the case has been settled? That bites.

But what doesn't bite is finally getting paid for work you did! NICE! It feels like free money to get it after so much time has passed, but I am sure that you earned it.

B*: For this kind of case, yes. Some cases, like personal injury or worker's comp, the attorney does not get paid until the matter is decided or settled. I had handed the case over to another attorney who finished the settlement negotiations. He will get paid too. But since the client was mine since 2003, I get the bulk of the attorneys fees.

Prisca: Yeah, I am thinking about Cabo in Jan or Feb! Nice way to start the fund! Although a little will go to fund some new threads for the new job!
