Frequently Asked Questions We Receive
Why is a contingency fee beneficial?
A contingency fee arrangement allows a client who has a personal injury case to select an experienced trial attorney who is skilled, experienced, and reputable to represent them at a time when they need it most, without having to pay him or her up from or by the hour. This type of a fee arrangement levels the playing field for clients by allowing them to hire an attorney of their choosing, based on the attorney’s background, past litigation and trial experience, reputation within the local community, and expertise.
Under this type of a fee arrangement, you gain access to the highest caliber representation to protect your rights, since you don’t have to pay him or her until your case settles.
Why should you hire a trial attorney?
Not all personal injury attorneys are created equal. Your lawyer’s knowledge, experience, and history of success matter. An attorney’s litigation background and track record in the courtroom also matter. While most cases do not end up going to trial (statistically, only about 5% of all cases do), in the event your case does actually proceed to trial, you will want a distinguished professional to stand alongside you and to assist you throughout the entire litigation and trial process. The attorney you choose matters. Be sure to ask any attorney you consider hiring how many cases he or she has taken to trial in the past 3-5 years.
