Another year is crossed off the calendar, and Smiley Law Group clients can again rest easy knowing that their legal fees won’t increase. On January 1, 2010, our firm celebrated its 5th year of not raising its billing rates.
Folks, we’ve never raised our billing rates on a client.
Think we’re going out of our way to brag about this? Think again. It’s almost a tradition in the legal profession for firms to annually raise rates on their clients.
Even the turbulent economic client isn’t enough to stop firms from raising rates. Reports and surveys are abound certifying that firms are raising rates on clients in 2010. Take a look:
- New Survey Shows Law Firms Will Raise Rates in 2010
- Despite Down Economy, Law Firms Say They’re Raising Rates
- Law Firms Likely to Hike Billing Rates in 2010
We’ve said it a thousand times: Smiley Law Group is different. Is your company ready for an attorney/client relationship that appreciates you? That’s focused on results? That understands the bottom line?
Happy New Year to our clients. And don’t worry – at Smiley Law Group, we’re sticking to our original agreement with you.
