Legal Fees Expert Witness On Contingent Fee Award

In Amendment to contingency fee contract expanding scope of work and scope of compensation held enforceable, legal fees expert witness James King writes:

In Rowe v. Law Offices of Ben C. Brodhead, PC., 735 S.E.2d 39 (Ga. Ct. App. 2012), a Georgia state appellate court upheld a jury verdict awarding a law firm $160,000 pursuant to an amendment to its contingent fee contract with its client. The amendment expanded its work to additional matters beyond that originally contemplated by the parties.
