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.



yes, are appellate fees appellate court granted those fees. but they are not experienced layers , they did not present any proof or contract or invoices or anything...the judge just granted the amount without evidence or testimony... so i would like to know how much other attorneys charge to compare and see if they overcharged and inflated the amount...this was a fraduclosure appeal and lasted 7 months....even i, as a prose can notice they do not have any experience and they have ...lets say...."cheap labor" , in fact , they have a tons of errors and do not even follow the rules (both courts)....but, you know im pro se and courts never read pro se papers. so objections or motions to strike were just ignored... thanks.


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.


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