How much will it cost to hire a lawyer?

One of the first questions that clients ask when they come in is about the fees. Anyone who’s come to us because of an injury, has already had something horrible happen to them, like a devastating car crash. Often, it’s devastating, not only physically, but financially. Often, it’s taken them out of work; the medical bills are piling up. And the first thing people want to know is how can they afford a lawyer? When we decide to take on an injury case, we take it on a contingency fee basis. And if we take on the case, we agree to finance the case and we take on the risks of the case. And what that means is that there is no financial obligation on the victim or their families until the case is resolved. And if the case is not settled or not resolved, there are simply no legal fees.
