NALFA conducts hourly rate surveys for law firms, corporate legal departments, and government agencies.  Our surveys provide the most accurate and current hourly rates within a given geography and practice area.  We can design hourly rate surveys for specific cases.  Our hourly rate surveys assist state and federal courts in awarding attorney fees in large, complex litigation throughout the U.S. 

NALFA recently conducted an hourly rate survey of plaintiffs’ counsel in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  This hourly rate survey was conduct for a Dallas area law firm seeking attorney fees in a product liability class action.  The last hourly rate survey of this type was conducted by the Dallas Bar Association in 2015.

This survey was conducted via email from May 5th-19th.  The survey results are private.  Only the client, survey participants, and members of the NALFA network received the results and findings.  The survey results show the current average hourly rate range for plaintiffs’ associate, senior associate, partner, and senior partner in class action litigation in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  Participants of this survey can see how their hourly rates compare to those of their litigation peers.
