Legal Fees: Consultation & Out-of-Court and Court Representation Regarding Estate Matters

Dr. Markus Wessel


My fees will be invoiced pursuant to Lawyers' Compensation Act [Rechtsanwaltsvergütungsgesetz, (RVG)]. In this legislation my fees are stipulated according to the value of the matter in dispute or the matter to be dealt with regardless of the time and work spent on the matter. 'Furthermore according to Lawyers' Compensation Act we can mutually agree in writing and signed on fees (e.g. based on an hourly rate), which must be higher than the regular fees stipulated in Lawyers' Compensation Act.

If you need my advice as a consumer, a first advice shall be charged in an amount not exceeding 190€ (exclusive VAT and a standard rate for expenses of 20€, this equals 249, 90€ incl. standard rate for expenses and VAT). A first advice implies a first visit and consultation on a matter or a general advice. Not included in a first advice shall be a written document created by me or with my help or a list produced by me.

However, there is nothing to replace a personal discussion. Conversations by telephone or by e-mail will not replace a personal discussion according to my experience.

You are welcome to make an appointment for a personal discussion by telephone or by e-mail.
