This firm has been representing injured persons for over 50 years. We handle all personal injury cases on a "contingency" fee basis. This means that we do not charge any upfront fee and only charge a fee if there is an award or recovery in the case. In this regard, our fee is ultimately a percentage of what we are able to recover for our clients either by settling out-of-court or winning at trial. While the majority of personal injury law firms charge a 40% fee for their services, this firm still charges 1/3 or 33 1/3 % regardless of whether suit is filed. Additionally, we will pay for the ordinary expenses of such a case (i.e. obtaining medical records and reports; hiring private investigators and liability experts; filing lawsuits; etc). Our position regarding our "contingency" arrangements reflects our confidence in our client's cases.
