payment money to attorneys

Our innovative approach to special appearances is taking over the courtrooms and we are glad that this simple tool, with a complex engine, is making a BIG difference in how our industry is run. We work hard to bring you the easiest to use and flexible solution that will truly change how you schedule your hearings and work more efficiently.

None of the appearances can be canceled with 24 hours of the appearance time. We do not think it is fair to cancel that late as we are all busy and make many arrangements to accommodate our busy work schedules. (You can ask the attorney not to appear in writing, but the full price will be charge AND the appearance attorney will get paid for the canceled appearance, unless he/she agrees not to.) Only attorneys of record can cancel appearance matches once an appearance attorney has signs up to appear.

Price Your Appearance Starting March 21, 2018 Attorneys of Record will be able to price their appearance. If you want to offer $145 for a CMC (which has a $70 minimum price) you can easily do so by entering your offered price in the field provided.

Pricing We have a simple way of charging per appearance. Starting at $70 per appearance our pricing is fair an competitive. On a $70 appearance we have a small $10 processing fee, which means you get $60 the second you close the case and submit a report to the attorney of record. Below is the complete list of processing fees that are associated with each type of appearance:

$70 to $100 we charge $10
$101 to $150 we charge $15
$151 to $200 we charge $20
$201 + we charge $6 + 3%
