We do not typically charge people a retainer, nor do we charge by the hour. Instead, we work on what is known as a contingent fee basis. That means earning our fee is “contingent” on the result we obtain in the case. We will investigate your case at no cost to you. If we determine that you do not have good grounds for a lawsuit, you’ll owe us nothing -- regardless of how much time and money we spent doing the investigation.
If we take your case, and are successful in obtaining an award or settlement for you, then we earn a fee by sharing in a certain percentage of that recovery. The specific percentage that we earn depends on the type of case. If we do not succeed in getting an award or settlement for you, then we earn no fee at all in the case.
