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:

  1. You do not have to pay us any money up front to start working on your case
  2. You do not have to pay us by the hour or by the job as we do work on your case
  3. 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.

What if I have other questions about workers compensation?

Georgia’s workers compensation system can be very confusing.  You have to worry about getting the treatment you need and paying your bills while also worrying about not missing any deadlines that could cause you to lose your right to receive workers compensation benefits.

If you have questions, I would recommend that you try to get answers.  To find out more about how to schedule a time to talk to me about your workers compensation questions, just read this short article.

I absolutely love this group of attorneys, when I was at my lowest they did everything they could to help me get justice for my injury. I believe if I were to have never picked my phone up and called the amazing group that helped me I definitely would not have received my idea of rights. If you have an issue and are just not sure please understand that they will help you, stay in contact, answer any question you have, and for sure get you the justice you deserve I thank them from the bottom of my heart and I will definitely refer them to anyone who has been hurt because they most definitely care about their work and clients.

If you must get a lawyer involved, you’d do well to work with Jason Perkins and his team at Perkins Studdard Law.They were thorough in gathering information and in sharing all the steps in the workers comp process specific to my case. Jason and the team were responsive to my bevy of questions and concerns.I appreciated the informative videos and consultations provided by Jason over video meetings and multiple phone calls.I hope I’m never injured on the job again. However, if I am and if my employer responds as my previous employer did, I’ll contact Perkins Studdard Law immediately to handle the case.

Everyone at Perkins Studdard was kind and professional. They were always extremely responsive and answered all questions that I had and followed up to make sure I had an understanding of what was going on along with emailing videos to explain every step of my case so I would know what to expect and be prepared. Jason is a very genuine person and I trusted him with my case. He answered so many questions for me even before I retained him as my WC lawyer. I highly recommend him and his associates at Perkins Studdard.
