Roomy 2-Bedroom Apartments in Sathorn

If you have a small family, finding a spacious 2-bedroom apartment in the Sathorn area of Bangkok can provide with all you need to enjoy a rewarding and comfortable lifestyle. But the term ‘spacious’ is crucial. Many of the modern apartment buildings being developed all across Bangkok are designed to conserve as much space as possible and maximise profits for the developers.

They all use the terms ‘spacious’, ‘roomy’ and ‘comfortable’, but when you actually see their living spaces, they can be anything but spacious. If you choose one of these developments for the facilities and amenities, your family will eventually feel like their living on top of each other. Walls are thin, there isn’t enough storage space, and you’ll try and find a reason to get out of the apartment as much as possible. Your family will become irritable with the lack of privacy and space.

Visit Bangkok Garden

Sathorn is one of the most desirable areas in Bangkok. It’s home to many of the multinational corporations in the city. It also offers easy access to the modern rail transit systems in Bangkok, as well as quality international schools and great shopping, restaurants and entertainment options. But, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort and space to rent a 2-bedroom apartment in Sathorn.

They also feature 2-bedroom apartments in Sathorn that are a whopping 120 square metres in size.

With the maid service, you’ll have more leisure time to spend with your family, and your home will always be spotless. There’s enough room to host dinner parties or invite your kid’s friends for sleep-overs.

How Much Do Lawyers Cost? A Breakdown

*Collaborative post.

How much do lawyers cost image

According to the American Bar Association, there are currently 1,328,692 attorneys in the United States. This allows room for a wide diversity in experience and attorney fees.

When you are trying to determine “how much do lawyers cost?” be aware that the amount of attorney fees you pay depends on the details of the case and the type of case you have. Here is an overview of attorney fees in the United States that shows the different billing methods attorneys use. 

Hourly Rates

On a national average attorney fees run $100 to $600 per hour. Rates for a new attorney or one located in a small town are more likely to be in the lower range. An attorney with years of experience, a high success rate winning at trial, or in a large metropolitan area will likely have higher rates.

Flat Fees

Some attorneys bill on a flat fee basis. The attorney estimates the amount of time it will take to resolve your case and will charge you one flat fee rather than billing on an hourly basis.

To your advantage, if the case takes longer than the attorney estimates, get more than you paid for. If the case takes less time than the attorney estimates, the attorney makes a better profit.

Contingency Fees

In a contingency fee, the attorney only collects a fee if they win your case. The normal contingency rate is 33.3% of the award. This fee is common for lawsuits such as personal injury and workman’s comp. The attorney fees, expenses, and liens are paid first, and then the client receives the remaining funds.

Overview of Total Charges

In addition to the attorney fees you pay your lawyer for appearing in court, your billing may reflect additional items including;

  • Court filing fees
  • Travel time to court
  • Phone conversations with you or others pertaining to your case
  • Court appearances
  • Time spend conducting research
  • Time spent drafting complaints, motions, depositions, and correspondence
  • Reviewing discovery, correspondence, emails from you, opposing counsel, or anyone else pertaining to your case
  • Office expenses such as copy expenses, the printing of evidence photos, process server fees, etc.

If your lawyer has a legal assistant or paralegal performing work on your case, your bill may reflect those services at a lower rate.

Retainer Fee

This is an up-front payment you make to retain the attorney’s services. The attorney then holds this money in an IOLTA account and withdraws money as they earn it while working on your case. Your monthly billing statements will show the work the attorney has done and the balance remaining on your retainer.

Consultation Fee

A large majority of attorneys offer free consultations. They look over your paperwork, advise you on what they can do, and quote you a price to retain their services. There are some attorneys that charge for consultation appointments.

When scheduling a consultation appointment, inquire as to whether or not there is a fee and how much time you will have to meet with the attorney. One of the qualities to look for on how an attorney will handle your case is the courtesy and professionalism of their staff on the phone.

How Much Do Lawyers Cost?

Answering the question “how much do lawyers cost?” is difficult because every case is different. Each type of case and attorney preference combine to determine the billing method. The best course of action is to schedule a consultation with an attorney to discuss your case.

They will advise you on the billing method for your case. If you decide to hire them will have you sign an attorney fee agreement. Make sure you understand your financial obligations prior to signing.

Keeping the kids engaged this summer

*Affiliate link.

The summer holidays are usually long and it is not an easy feat to keep young kids engaged and busy. This summer 2020, it is even harder to keep the little ones engaged and busy with all that we have going on. It feels like it’s been a long year but we only just started the second half of the year some weeks ago. I have been working from home and homeschooling the kiddies since March. It has not been an easy job but I choose to make the most of the time we spend together. Luckily, I rounded up university work early April, so that was one thing off the list of things to do. And I could focus fully on work and the twins. We closed for the term some weeks ago and are now just taking each day as it comes.

Kids Style Picture

Keeping the kids engaged this summer

With us not being able to go on holiday and do much outdoors really, we have had to really think outside the box. Our summer days look a lot like these –

Long walks

We try to leave the house every day (weather permitting) to go for long walks around our estate. We make our walks fun by talking about what we seeing. The kids are forever looking out for bees, snails, and the likes. Our walks sometimes turn to runs when we get to our local park. It is nice and quiet and the twins enjoy running around there while I catch my breath.

Trampoline

Having a trampoline along with other garden toys is a good investment. My little ones could jump around in the trampoline all day if I let them. Having swings, slides, pools, and other garden toys are also great ways of keeping the children entertained for some time. I know a family that completely transform their garden space every sunny day. They have artificial grass and they make the most of it. Their little one is so lucky, she gets a huge tent and lots of toys out when the weather is nice. The garden looks like a soft play on sunny days; a beauty to behold.

Board games

We have recently gotten into board games as a family. I played lots of board games growing up and I am happy to see my twins are really into them now. They love playing Ludo, Snakes and Ladders, Monopoly and Scrabble. Playing board games is a great way to spend time engaged as a family and sometimes the kiddies enjoy playing on their own. I got this portable board set below and it has changed our free time for the better.

These are just some of the ways we are spending our summer days. It has been fun and the extra time with no planned holiday has allowed us to be more creative with what we have around us. How are you keeping the little ones engaged this summer? Please sound off in the comments section below.
