What Will a Legal Malpractice Action Cost?

 

There is no cost for an initial telephone consultation with our firm. Effective client service is first and foremost based on an understanding about the economic terms of the lawyer/client relationship. It helps avoid later misunderstandings, and this is always discussed in detail, at no charge, during the initial consultation. The exact terms of representation will be set forth in a written fee agreement.

For general informational purposes, set forth below are examples of our firm's general billing practices.

Contingent Fees

We are able to handle most meritorious attorney malpractice claims, personal injury claims and other claims seeking an award of monetary damages on a contingent fee basis. A contingent fee is a fee that is paid only upon a successful outcome in your case and is charged as a predetermined percentage of that outcome. If there is no successful recovery, you will owe no fee. For clients who prefer to go with an hourly fee arrangement, we provide a retainer agreement and an estimated budget.

Initial Consultation/Review Retainer

There is no charge for an initial consultation, which may take place by telephone or via internet. The purposes of the initial consultation are threefold:

  1. For you to have your questions clearly answered;
  2. For you to determine if what we have to offer fits well with your expectations; and
  3. For us to make an initial determination as to whether your case is sufficient for both of us to invest the time, energy and cost it will take to bring about a successful result.

Sometimes, if it is not possible for us to evaluate your case properly in an initial consultation, we may ask that you pay a retainer for further document and legal review, in order to determine if your case is meritorious. If you agree to do so, your full retainer amount will be credited against any contingent fee earned in your case. However, there is never any charge for an initial telephone consultation, and you have no obligation arising from our consultation. Whether or not you hire us, your consultation and everything about it is kept in the strictest confidence.
