Online Meeting via Zoom

A signed fee agreement not only outlines what work you are agreeing to do, it explains what you are not going to do as well as what the client agrees to do. Under CA law a contract can be oral or written, but oral contracts can be very difficult to enforce.

We will discuss fee agreements, how they are enforced, and why they make your life easier.
