FAQs

Do you take cases on a contingent fee?

Yes, sometimes. Contingent fee cases usually have two principal characteristics.  First, they usually involve matters where a primary goal is to recover a sum of money for some type of wrong or damage that has been done, such as a physical injury claim. Second, the client is usually not in a position to pay the lawyer's hourly rate for work performed as the case progresses. The idea is that the lawyer will get paid out of the money recovered, assuming the case is successful. If no money is recovered, the client does not have to pay.  Therefore, the lawyer assumes the risk of a possible loss in exchange for a potential fee - usually a percentage of the recovery - if there is a recovery. On the other hand, the client shares the risk of loss, but also agrees to share the recovery in the event there is one. Obviously not all cases  are amenable to this type of arrangement. If you're unsure whether your case can be taken on a contingent fee, it doesn't hurt to ask.

Do you do free consultations?

Again, yes - sometimes.  It depends on the case.  The type of case that is usually appropriate for a contingent fee is also one where we will initially consult with you for free.

Do you require a retainer?

What most people call a retainer is actually an advanced fee.  That is, a sum of money is paid up front and held in trust until expended as the case progresses for fees (at the agreed upon hourly rate) and costs.  New clients will often be required to pay an advanced fee until a sufficient relationship has developed between the lawyer and client. There are other, less common, arrangements as well. Such as, a flat fee and a true retainer where the lawyer is paid a set amount to perform work for the client on an as needed basis for a set period of time.
