Our firm, like many personal injury firms, operates based on
contingency fees. This means we do not charge a client any money to hire us. We also don't
charge a client during the case. Nor do we charge for every hour of work
we put into the case. Instead, we only charge a fee if a certain condition
(a contingency) comes to pass: that is,
if we win your case. If we recover money for you, then we take a fraction (which we agree
to ahead of time) of the recovery as a fee, but the majority is yours.
If we can't win the case, there is no recovery, and you don't
owe us a fee.
This system has advantages for clients. It means that you don't have
to pay any money out of your pocket for us to work on your case. Our fee
(if we get one) will instead come out of the money that we recover for
you. It also means that there isn't a risk to you in the event that
you lose – it's a disappointment, but you won't owe us any fee.
