Legal interpretation rates in the US Jan 25, 2002

My experience says that rates vary from $40/hour to $70/hour. Most agencies will pay $50/hour, with a 3-hour minimum charge for each case, and additional charge for driving time. Weekend rates can go up 25-50%. Hope I helped. The rule of the minimum charge is important to follow.
