Profit costs – in the area of civil representation, this legal term details the lawyer’s fees and the expenses related to performing court case. The lawyer’s fee is the fee charged for performance of concrete legal work. The expenses (for example, travel expenses, taxes for obtaining documents at authorities, etc.) are these which have to be covered during performance of the legal work. Lawyers use to detail their profit costs in invoices or letters of engagement to clients.
* Note that practicing lawyers do not protect the legal and financial interests of people for free (except where provided n th legislation), i.e. they don’t work and. accept pressure by the opposite parties for free; their personal advocacy is paid simply because they make expenses to keep business, so when asking a lawyer for their legal opinion on a concrete legal issue, you should pay them for their opinion and legal advice; it is the same like when you visit a doctor and pay for their competent diagnose and accurate medical treatment.
