Contingency Fees

We occasionally take cases on a contingency basis. There is a non-refundable $50 charge for a brief initial case review. If we accept the case, no further charges (other than expenses) are due until the case is settled. At that time, our fee is 1% of the total (i.e. gross) settlement, with a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of $25,000. Note that these figures may be adjusted upwards slightly if no settlement is reached after five and eight years (from the time of our initial involvement); contact us for more details. Also, all expenses are expected to be paid in full under our usual terms.
