The fee of our Fixed Amount System consists of the following three types of legal fees.
1. Retainer Fee： This is to be paid before the commencement of our legal services
2. Trial or Hearing Day Wage： This is to be paid for our legal services at trials, pretrial proceedings, or other equivalent proceeding in the courthouse.
3. Contingent Fee： This is to be paid for the goal achieved by our service
■ Retainer Fee
We, through discussion with our clients, decide the amount of the retainer fee based on the client’s plea to the charge , the goal of our legal service. The standard amounts are as follows (Consumption Tax is included):
Trial or Hearing Day Wage is paid for our legal service at the court. The amount are as follows (Consumption Tax is included):
Pretrial arrangement proceedings or equivalent proceeding ¥54,000~￥81,000/session
Trial ¥108,000～￥162,000/session (if the trial finishes within two hours, it is ¥54,000)
■ Contingent Fee
The amount of the Contingent Fee is decided based on how much we have achieved through our legal service against the goal set at the execution of the contract. The standard amounts of the Contingent Fee are as follows (Consumption Tax is included):
Suppose you were arrested for molestation in a train car and you admitted you did it. You would want to retain us to make a settlement with the victim and negotiation with public prosecutor over your release from your indictment. In such case, the retainer fee would be JPY324,000, and if we could get a decision not to prosecute, the contingent fee would be JPY324,000. Therefore our attorney fee totals up JPY648,000.
Suppose you plead not guilty for the samecharge, and we, with discussion with you, set our goal to get a decision not to prosecute. And suppose further that this case finishes with a fine with summary proceedings, our retainer fee would be JPY864,000 and our contingent fee would be JPY432,000, totaling JPY1,296,000.
If in this case you were indicted, and you denied the charge. After the pretrial sessions, trial will begin. For example, if you get an acquittal after 4 sessions of pretrial sessions and three day of trial, our attorney fee would be: Retainer Fee of JPY864,000, the Trial or Hearing Day Wage of 540,000, and the Contingent Fee of 864,000, totaling JPY2,268,000.
■ Execution of Written Contract
The above fees are our standards. In every case we hear our client and draft a written attorney-client agreement, based on the discussion with the client, considering his/her personal situation.
We do not charge any additional fee for meetings at police stations, bail applications, filing objections against detention orders or other decisions, other than the above mentioned fee. We provide always “The Best Defense” for you.
