If you have a case, you have a lawyer. Your lawyer obviously has to be good. But once you enter the process of negotiating a lawsuit, you not only have to have a lawyer who can fight in court, you have to have a lawyer who can work with you and your witnesses to put together a strong case. That requires compassion, dedication, and respect. You have to trust your lawyer so they can help you. That is what we are here for. We are here to help you win your case so you can get the least that you are owed after your ordeal, which is a little money.
There are a lot of myths about the finances of a case.
If you're in personal injury, you'll be charged on a "contingency" basis which means the lawyer only gets paid a percentage of the proceeds if we win. I am also willing to take a retainer or flat fee up front and sacrifice some of the percentage.
Non-PI cases take a retainer upfront and costs throughout the course of litigation.
Give our office a call and we’ll figure out if you have a case!
