Can a lawyer change the Client Rights in their contract?
Using Right #2 an example,
Any contingent fee contract must be in writing and you have three (3) business days to reconsider the contract. (etc.)
Can a law firm write in their standard contract that the client has two (2) business days to reconsider?
Or Right #6 (in part)
"... You also have the right to decide, after consulting with your lawyer, how much money is to be spent to prepare a case. If you pay the expenses, you have the right to decide how much to spend."
Can a lawyer have in their standard contract that they are authorized to make additional expenditures without consulting the client as long as they believe that the amounts are reasonable and needed for the preparation of the claim?
Is this possible?
