We charge our customers strictly on a contingency fee basis. This means that payment will only be made in case of a winning verdict or settlement. After a successful settlement, charges are made on a percentage of the total money received on the claim in addition to the filing fees or other court expenses.
The contingency fees percentage often ranges from 20% to 50%. It is determined by a number of factors such as the complexity of the case, reputation of the attorney, the amount of labor required, the attorney client relationship, and the duration of the case. Most state laws prevent lawyers from asking an unreasonable percentage in contingency fees and thus they protect the rights of the plaintiff.
Contingency fees are a convenient fee model because it makes it possible for people of all kinds of financial backgrounds to file a suit and recover their damages. While the case costs have to be paid regardless of the verdict, they are usually affordable and well worth the amount that you can obtain by hiring an attorney.
