Who pays for out-of-pocket expenses while my case is pending?

This will depend on the fee and cost agreement that is agreed to in your case. Where we are handling a case on a contingency fee basis, we typically advance expenses incurred during our representation. In that situation, our fee will be a percentage of the recovery computed before deducting expenses. If and when the case reaches a successful conclusion, the costs we have expended are returned to us out of recovery. If your case is the type of case where we do not advance expenses incurred during our representation, you will be advised of that in your initial meeting. In that situation, we will discuss in detail the projected expenses and the appropriate way to handle the payment of expenses.
