Normally, we work on what is known as a contingency basis. If you win and are awarded money through a settlement or by a jury award, we receive a percentage of the award or settlement. We advance nearly all of the cost of litigation, which could be from $5,000 to over $100,000. So in theory, there is no money out of your pocket unless you win. We are repaid our advance of costs, and the attorney’s fees only if you win. If, in the unlikely case you do not win, you do not owe us any of the money we have advanced on your behalf or any attorney’s fees. You pay only if you are awarded money. See our contingency contract for details.
