We typically handle personal injury matters and charge clients what is called a contingency fee. This means that our fee for the legal services we provide will be based on a percentage of what we recover for you. In most cases the percentage is a third of the net recovery. The net recovery refers to the amount recovered less the expenses incurred to obtain the recovery. For example, if the recovery is $100,000 and the case expenses were $4,000, the net recovery would be $96,000 and the fee would be a third of that, or $32,000. If you do not recover, there is no fee charged. If we accept your case we will enter into a written contingency fee agreement that will clearly spell out all of these details.
