How Can I Pay for an Expert Lawyer to Help Me?
Most American citizens can't afford to pay hourly fees for a case like a Injury or Wrongful Death that can take hundreds or thousands of hours of legal work. Experienced lawyers take cases on contingency fee. A clear, understandable fee agreement describes the percentage of the recovery that your lawyer will receive, only if the claim/lawsuit is successful. The agreement should also clearly describe responsibility for costs (e.g. court fees, deposition costs, travel, expert witnesses, investigators), which can involve thousands of dollars. If a claim/lawsuit is not successful, our fee agreement provides that you are not responsible for repaying these costs, while other law firms may require you to repay these costs.
