What Does A Flat Fee Agreement With An Attorney Cover?

A flat fee is used most often by legal clinics and some law firms or lawyers for routine legal matters, like drawing up a simple will or handling an uncontested divorce.  When you agree to a fixed fee, be sure that you know what it does and does not include.  You also should find out if any other charges might be added later on such as court costs or office expenses.
