My clients are often perplexed by the entire concept of contingency fees. The very framework of contingency fees can seem completely enigmatic – Which can often deter injured victims from coming forward in the first place! Make no mistake, a contingency fee structure is always beneficial to the client. Ensuring you have a solid understanding of contingency fees and how it can impact each case can be critical when someone ponders legal recourse. As the victim of an injury resulting from medical malpractice, birth injury, negligence, accidents and more, you can seek financial compensation without ever spending a dime from your pocket.  Contingency fee structure provides a realistic way to gain the justice and the compensation you deserve.

Why would any attorney offer contingency fee services?

I think inherently as humans, we are pre-programmed to be suspicious and cautious. It is against our very nature to comprehend the thought of ‘free’ professional services. Contingency fees are not free, but rather a mutually beneficial system where the injured victim and legal professional are fairly compensated.

When I take a case, I exhaust every possible resource to prepare and present the facts. From expert witnesses to extensive research, testing and everything in between – There is no expense spared when it comes to my clients’ cases. My clients are always my number one priority, and they deserve to be compensated for their injuries. It is my job to obtain the highest compensation possible and when this occurs, I too get compensated based on a percentage of the settlement. It is truly a win win for all parties concerned!

Realities of Contingency Fees

In the real world, while some cases may not result in the amount of compensation desired, it is also fairly common that cases are proven and won quickly, with your favorable outcome upheld. A contingency fee may seem like a steep price to pay if your case is settled quickly, but consider the alternative – the fact that very few cases are successfully resolved without the help of an personal injury attorney. Keep in mind contingency fees are established up front, at the beginning of our client-attorney relationship, and you can be 100% confident that I am truly in your corner.
