This is a problem that comes up quite frequently. A client pursues recovery for a relatively small amount, loses, and then owes attorney's fees that far exceed the amount at issue. Not to mention the fees the plaintiff has paid to his or her attorney. After the shock wears off, the client then wants to appeal this seemingly unfair result. Appellate practitioners have to be very careful not to pour salt on the wound because the client then faces the very real possibility of paying attorneys' fees for the appeal.
