With personal injury cases, our fees depend upon, or are contingent upon the outcome of your case. The usual fee is one third of the funds obtained on your behalf either by settlement or trial. If there is no settlement or successful verdict, then there is no obligation to pay any attorney fees. The law does require that the client is ultimately responsible for the costs incurred with the litigation. In most cases, our office will advance those costs and you will not have to pay any money up front. The costs are then paid out of the recovery at the time your case is settled.
