RE: statutory awards of attorney fees
$175 per hour.
I have about 10 cases involving the
award of attorney fees to successful plaintiffs in consumer rights cases.
The award of attorney fees is required by statute to be made to successful
plaintiffs.The courts here are desirous of learning the hourly rates
charged by attorneys in Saginaw in order that they don't short the plaintiffs
attorneys on fees due them nor gouge the offending defendants.
It would be very helpful to
me, other counsel involved and the courts if a survey of the members of
the local bar could be done asking the amount of the hourly rates charged
by them. This would be a good guide to the judges deliberating these issues in
Please help! This
information is needed as soon as possible.
Thanks and best regards,
