HOW WE WORK

No Fee Unless We Win

Generally, there are no costs to our clients throughout the course of their case. Our firm carries the cost of the case and any disbursements. When your matter resolves either through settlement or at trial, our firm takes a portion of the settlement for fees and cost disbursements. Our Attorneys will explain the retainer and fee arrangements clearly at the initial free consultation.

What is a Contingency Fee?

With a contingency fee agreement, your attorney will only get paid when you recover compensation — via settlement or court judgment — in your personal injury case. 

From the

American Bar Association

A client pays a contingent fees to a lawyer only if the lawyer handles a case successfully. Lawyers and clients use this arrangement only in cases where money is being claimed—most often in cases involving personal injury or workers’ compensation. 

In a contingent fee arrangement, the lawyer agrees to accept a fixed percentage (often one third) of the recovery, which is the amount finally paid to the client. If you win the case, the lawyer’s fee comes out of the money awarded to you. If you lose, neither you nor the lawyer will get any money, but you will not be required to pay your attorney for the work done on the case. 

On the other hand, win or lose, you probably will have to pay court filing fees, the costs related to deposing witnesses, and similar charges.
