Why You Should Attend
Many consumer protection cases are litigated under fee-shifting laws. If you prevail on behalf of the consumer in your case, you may be able to recover attorney fees from the other side. Many consumer protection attorneys are well versed on the substantive law that allows them to prevail on behalf of their clients. This webinar discusses the next step: how to prepare for and conduct an evidentiary hearing to ethically increase your chances of recovering the full amount of attorney fees to which you may be entitled. We will discuss the "nuts and bolts" aspects of obtaining a fee judgment, including:
* Alternative grounds for recovery of attorney fees
* Whether to bifurcate the fee entitlement and fee amount issues
* Discovery as to fee entitlement and fee amount
* Fee experts
* Conducting the evidentiary hearing
* Fee appeals

Presenter
