In most of our cases, we do not charge an hourly fee. Instead, we work on a contingency fee basis, meaning we receive fees only upon successful resolution of your case. In plain language, we get paid only if we succeed. Our fee is a percentage of the total settlement or award you receive. The percentage is agreed upon up before we take your case, and you pay us nothing up front.
A serious personal injury case can also require substantial out-of-pocket costs, including everything from postage to hiring expert witnesses. Our typical practice is to use our own money to advance those costs. The costs of the case are then reimbursed to us out of any settlement or verdict.
