Philip Marlowe, the gumshoe creation of Raymond Chandler, had different fees depending on the year the book was written. In 1939, in The Big Sleep, he charged $25 a day, plus expenses. During and after WWII, he jacked it up to $50 (still plus expenses). IIRC, he usually took $100 or so as a retainer.

Check out Philip Marlowe in the Big Sleep
I think on tip of my tongue.US lawyer played by james stewart defending black American for rape may be or was it Gregory Peck?
To kill a Mocking Bird?

sorry Dave didn't refresh page
Atticus Finch ?
no worry
Must be Mamalynnes answer then.
He may have been paid the same as Marlowe but the book came out in 1960.
Dave's answer really, I was still researching.
The story was set in the 1930s though. Still I have no idea if Atticus even bothered to charge his client.
