Your initial consultation and our initial investigation into your claim is free. We don’t believe in charging people for our services until we know we can help them.
Following our initial investigation, we may offer our services on a formal basis if we believe your claim has merit. At that time, you may chose between hourly or contingency fee agreements.
An hourly fee agreement is where you promise to pay costs involved in handling your case and pay the attorneys an hourly rate. A contingency fee agreement is where your attorney would only be compensated for their time if, and only if, there was a recovery in your case. If there was no recovery in your case, then the attorney would not be paid.
We are also open to non-traditional methods, either through stair-step contingency fees (the fee begins at a lower setting and upon the occurrence of certain events in the process increases as time invested increases) or blended arrangements (costs are paid for by the client while the attorneys are not compensated for their hourly efforts until the end of the case).
