I charge a contingency fee which means you do not pay any money unless I win your case by trial or settlement. I advance the costs of litigation including filing the complaint and hiring of expert witnesses. My fees and costs are paid out of your settlement or verdict. If I don't win your case, you don't pay me anything. As far as the percentage that I charge it also depends on the case, generally most personal injury lawyers charge one third before trial. Again, I am always open to discussing the percentage of the contingency fee with my client and want to make sure that you are comfortable with my fee and that it is a fair fee for the work performed.
