The rate a lawyer will charge you depends on what type of case you have. Some attorneys will not charge any upfront fees and you pay only when they recover money on your behalf. Personal injury attorneys charge on a contingency fee basis. Others will charge you a flat fee to handle your case. For example, a criminal lawyer may charge you a flat fee to handle a DUI case or an estate planning attorney will charge you a flat fee to do your estate plan. Many divorce lawyers and business lawyers on the other hand will charge you by the hour to handle your case.

Most lawyers charge around the same rates. The best lawyers usually charge around 150-200/hr. Some lawyers also charge just a flat rate for a certain case. If they feel you might have to go to court then they may decide to charge you hourly, however if a settlement is in sight they may just charge a flat rate.
Lawyers must follow all the laws that every citizen does. In addition, there are laws that are specific to lawyers, such as ones pertaining to their conduct in and out of court. For example, in some states a lawyer may not solicit a case. As opposed to people in most professions who are expected to seek out clients.
Depends on the practice are, but you will find mose contigency cases will be personal injury cases. The usual percentage depends from 25% to 40% plus costs. Most lawyers will use a sliding scale- most will charge a lower percentage if there is a quick settlement before trial, while most lawyers will charge the full 30+% if a case goes to trial.
As a lawyer, I do not have a set price list for billing clients but I do charge by the hour. My rate is typically $200 per hour-though I am flexible depending on my clients ability to pay etc. Firstly, I offer a 'free consulation'. You tell me the problem and I give you the options and an estimated cost of each option. For example, if you were arrested for assault, I would listen to what you say occurred and would tell you your options from fighting the charge, to accepting no contest etc. Obviously, the more complex a case and the longer it takes to resolve will cost more money. Calling expert witnesses, going through paperwork, filing documents all takes time and money-expert witnesses are usually paid and you usually pay someone to locate such an expert. Filing papers also cost money to do. So all-in-all each case can be different. I estimate the amount of time each case would require, sometimes it is a quick letter, a court date is many hours of preparation and work. So usually most lawyers can only provide a ballpark figure as an estimate.
