According to § 24 of the Act No. 586/2003 Coll. on the Legal Profession the lawyer provides legal services in return for a fee and has the right to request a reasonable advance payment for the same.

In addition to the right to the fee, the lawyer shall also have the right to receive compensation of any direckt expenses and compensation for loss of time. Under direct costs one understands the appropriate and reasonable costs expended in connection with performance of legal services, especially court and other fees, travel and telecommunication expenses, expenses for expert’s reports, translations, copies of or extracts from public registers.

The lawyer’s fee shall be determined on the basis of the agreement between the lawyer and the client; if there is no agreement, the lawyer shall be entitled to a charge fee.

The lawyer may provide legal services for a reduced fee or free of charge, if there allow the client's personal circumstances or if a special reason exists for it.

The lawyer may neither require nor to accept the fee for legal services from the client which is paid to him by the State in accordance with § 25.

According to § 25 of the Act No. 586/2003 Coll. on the Legal Profession unless otherwise specified, the fee of an ordered or of an ex officio determined lawyer shall be paid by the state.
