Our fees

The fees of the firm of Eleonora Mascolo are set in complete transparency with the client, after acceptance of our quote by the latter, in accordance with the rules of ethics of the profession of Lawyer.

The firm Eleonora Mascolo undertakes to evoke the question of fees from the first appointment, after having read the case. The method of payment most suited to the client and the case in question will be systematically recommended by the Cabinet Eleonora MASCOLO.

To specify the terms and conditions for fixing the fees, a fee agreement will be made between the firm of Maître Eleonora Mascolo and the client. Three formulas can be proposed:

Fees at the time spent:

Fees will be based on the number of hours the firm handles the file. The amount of the fees will therefore depend on both the time spent and the hourly rate (which depends in particular on the nature of the tasks to be performed).

The flat rate fee:

This formula is generally used in cases where there is little risk in the process, allowing the firm to agree with its client a lump sum for the entire processing of the case .

The "result" fee.

Where the firm and the client have expressly provided for this in the fee agreement, additional compensation, based on obtaining a specific result for the client, may be added to a "minimum" fee. Based on a package or a quota of hours. However, the performance fee can not be the sole mode of remuneration of the lawyer.

Legal protection: if you have legal protection insurance as part of an insurance contract, the Cabinet Eleonora MASCOLO fees may be covered, in part or in full, by your insurance company. Despite this financial support, the client remains free to choose his lawyer.

Compensation and reimbursement of fees: the Code of Civil Procedure (Article 700) and the Code of Criminal Procedure (Article 475-1) provide for the possibility for a court to order the opposite party to reimbursing you partially or in full for the fees and expenses incurred in court proceedings.
