How Much Will It Cost to Hire an Attorney?
Many people who contact us to ask legal questions have concerns about the cost associated with talking to an attorney. A lot of the time, people are wondering whether it will cost them money to talk to an attorney. They also wonder how much it will cost them if they decide to hire an attorney.
Will It Cost Any Money To Consult With You About My Case?
In our firm, the answer to the first question is easy. It will not cost you any money to talk to us or meet with one of our attorneys. We have attorneys who specialize in representing the injured and disabled in personal injury, workers’ compensation, veterans’ disability and Social Security disability claims. In all of these types of cases, we provide free consultations.
Do I Have To Pay Anything Up Front If I Decide To Hire You?
Regarding the second question of how our attorneys are paid, we almost always agree to work on a case based on a contingency fee agreement. In case you are not familiar with this term, a contingency fee agreement means that the only time you pay us is when we succeed in recovering money for you. We have found that there are at least three reasons that this type of attorney’s fee agreement is good for our clients:
- You do not have to pay us any money up front to start working on your case
- You do not have to pay us by the hour or by the job as we do work on your case
- You do not have to pay us an attorney’s fee at all unless we are successful in recovering money for you on your case.
We believe that working on a contingency fee gets better results for our clients because they only have to pay us if they win. Also, it allows us to help you out even if you do not have the money to pay us at the time you hire us. You can hire us now so we can work for you and pay us later if we are successful on your case.
