The Texas Appellate Law Blog has done all appellate lawyers and contingency fee trial lawyers a favor with a post urging trial lawyers to include in their contingent fee agreements a provision explaining how the fee is affected if an appeal is taken: “There really is no right or wrong way to do it, but in my view, contingent-fee agreements should always spell out what happens in the event of an appeal.” He also covers a number of different ways to do it. Please check it out.

Thanks for discussing my post, Greg. I really like what you’re doing with your blog these days and am planning on returning the favor.
