Patent attorney's fee and salary?!

Can anyone explain how to price patent attorney's service?
 
If a lawyer who has legal knowledge but no special factual (i.e., scientific)  knowledge charges $X/hour, do you think a patent lawyer who has both legal and special factual knowledge can charge $(X +Y)/hour.  
 
We do have to take and pass patent bar. Is it okey to charge additional $$ for special patent procedural knowledge? If the value of this special patent procedural knowledge is Z, does it make sense to charge $(X +Y+Z)/hour.
 
Do patent lawyers get "premium salary" compared to others?

Well...the short answer is that patent agents and lawyers get paid what the client is willing to pay.

In theory, an attorney with XYZ ought to get his work done faster than attorney without the knowledge.  
 
I work in a GP firm and my billing rate is exactly the same as the non practitioner associates in the firm.  They all have specialized knowledge and procedural knowledge that I don't have.
