Most attorneys charge by the hour. The hourly rates among attorneys vary depending on the type of work and their level of experience.
A lawsuit is a civil action brought before a court of law in which a plaintiff, a party who claims to have received damages from a defendant’s actions, seeks a legal or equitable remedy. The defendant is required to respond to the plaintiff’s complaint. If the plaintiff is successful, judgment will be given in the plaintiff’s favor, and arrange of court orders may be issued to enforce a right, award damages, or impose an injunction to prevent an act or compel an act. The conduct of a lawsuit is called litigation. Source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawsuit
