    In India, there is no code for lawyers fees and for fees for medical practitioners. Neither the Bar Council nor the Medical Council have done anything to fix any norms or guides lines in this regard. It is a kind of law of the jungles. If you have a good practise, you charge for the time you spend for conference, appearance in the court etc. If you do not any brief, you some how try to get it and fleece the client. It is a very sorry state of affairs in India.

    For the most part in the US, fees are based on what the current traffic in the area sets and will bear. YOu can find fees from $25-2000 per hour depending on the type of case and lawyer; and you can find a lot of "Fixed fee" attys doing specific things like divorce and bankruptcy for, say 400 and filing fees.
