We like to be upfront about our billing process. For that reason, you can learn about our firm’s billing methods below. The method of billing will vary based on the nature of each client’s case. Click the sections below to learn more about each method.


Using an hourly fee agreement, fees are charged based on the amount of time a case requires. Lewis McDaniels tracks time by fractions of an hour, in 6-minute increments (.1 hours). The length of time spent on a case by an attorney and staff differs greatly based on the specific issues involved.

A hybrid fee agreement combines two or more types of fee agreements. A hybrid fee agreement is typically used in situations where a client only desires legal help for a particular portion of a larger issue. For example, under a hybrid agreement, an attorney may draft a document such as a demand letter for a flat rate, then charge an hourly rate for any subsequent legal work.

Under a fixed fee agreement, a flat rate is often paid up front and covers the entirety of a particular issue.

A fixed fee agreement clearly states which services, expenses, and/or fees will be included in the representation.

A contingency fee agreement is a type of fee arrangement under which the attorneys are compensated depending on the outcome of the case. In other words, the client is not charged any attorneys’ fees unless the client receives some form of compensation

Natalia S.

Mr. McDaniels is a wonderful lawyer and teacher. He somehow makes time for everyone, always follows through in timely manner, and holds a tremendous amount of knowledge of constitutional, civil and criminal law in his head. I highly recommend working with him.

Rick B.

Having known Attorney Nicholas McDaniels for several years, I have come to know not only a spectacular attorney; but an extraordinary teacher of law students and genuine, caring friend! Mr. McDaniels exudes the honesty, trust, and legal knowledge that you want in an attorney and friend. Most recommended by myself and many of my closest business associates and friends. If you require a motivated, savvy, driven attorney whose simple nature and mannerisms make you extremely comfortable and confident, Nick is the attorney for you! He’s been the attorney for me, and I’ll never look anywhere else. Thanks for always being you, Nick. All my best and thanks for everything!

Sean A.

Nick McDaniels is an accessible and knowledgeable lawyer. He assisted me in confidential negotiations and was patient, creative, and had great insights into strategy of opposing counsel, legal options, and possible court tactics. Highly recommend!
