The majority of cases we handle involve a contingent fee contract. That means we do not get paid a fee until and unless our client makes a recovery. Generally, our fees will be a percentage with recovery computed before deducting expenses. In some circumstances, we will represent the client on an hourly basis if the case calls for such a contract, in which case a retainer agreement may be made. In either instance, the full details of the fee and cost agreement you have with our firm will be explained to you in detail before we begin pursuing your case.
