    It has long been a tactic for defendants who lose or are on the verge of losing to challenge the fees and rates the plaintiff attorney is getting. A plaintiff attorney's fees can sometimes be excessive but many times they are in line and earned because of the hard work they dedicate to a case. Most of the times, the fees they take are contingency fees which means they are deferred until the verdict which can be a hardship on the lawyer.
