  1. there isn't a set rate, per se, everyone charges different fees based on their skill and ability. If you are talking about statutory fees, that may be a separate question.

  2. Florida uses the lodestar method -- reasonable hours of work times the reasonable hourly rate. Typically a third party attorney and the attorney who did the work testify as to both factors. If you're going to challenge the amount of the award you should act quickly including getting counsel.

    There is no substitute for the professional advice of an attorney who knows your case and represents you. My post is not, and may not be relied on as, legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Best wishes for a just and expeditious resolution.

  3. There is not a fixed rate, it depends upon what is a reasonable rate.
