The cost of employing our firm depends upon several factors, including, but not limited to:
- the type of case you have;
- the length of time your case takes, and
- Whether appeals are filed.
What type of case do you have?
The cost of your case depends in part upon what type of case you have. A divorce case costs more than a child support case.
How much your case costs also depends upon how contentious the parties are in the case. The more contentious the parties are, the longer a particular case can take.
What is the cost of hiring you for a medical malpractice or personal injury case?
There is no upfront cost for attorney time for cases involving personal injury or medical malpractice. Instead of an hourly fee, these cases are billed on what is called a contingency. A contingency arrangement means the attorney takes a predetermined percentage of whatever you receive from a settlement or verdict.
If we do not win, you do not owe your attorney anything for attorney time.
What is the percentage of our firm’s contingency fee?
In personal injury cases and medical malpractice cases, our firm takes 33.3% of whatever is obtained, whether by suit or settlement. On top of this amount, the firm removes an amount equivalent to the litigation expenses paid on your behalf by the firm (if any).
If your case goes to an appeal, the contingency fee rises to 40% of whatever amount obtained by either suit or settlement.
The percentages above are drastically less than similar firms in the area. For instance, the firm of Keller & Keller, who spends millions on advertisements, charges a 40% contingency fee. Even though they would like you to believe they are somehow extra qualified in the field of personal injury law, as some of the posts detail on our website explain, this is far from the truth.
