VANN ATTORNEYS LEGALPAD PODCAST
In this episode of the Vann Attorneys Legal Pad Podcast Attorneys James Vann and Ian Richardson discuss the topic of Attorney's Fees and who is responsible for paying Attorney's Fees. A question Vann Attorneys gets in almost every new engagement is who has to pay the attorney’s fees associated with litigation. The answer to that question is “it depends.” However, the safest assumption for you is that in North Carolina you will likely be responsible for your own legal fees. There are some instances, though, where you are entitled to recover your attorney’s fees. Whether you actually recover them is a different issue. Topics include:
• General Rule
• Exceptions to the General Rule
• Reasons Why You May Not Get Your Fees
• Contracts That Provide for Fees
• Lien Claims
• Unfair & Deceptive Trade Practice Claims
• Wage & Hour Claims
• Punitive Damages Claims
• Key Takeaways
