Understanding Our Contingency Fee Structure:
At DeSimone Law Office, we believe in fighting for justice on your behalf without burdening you with upfront legal fees. This is why we operate on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. Here’s what that means:
No Upfront Fees: You won’t have to pay any attorney’s fees upfront to retain our services or for our ongoing representation.
Payment Upon Successful Outcome: Our attorney’s fees are contingent upon us securing a favorable outcome for your case, either through a settlement or a verdict in your favor. If we don’t win, you don’t pay us attorney’s fees.
Percentage-Based Fee: If we successfully resolve your case, our fee will be a percentage of the total recovery. This percentage will be agreed upon at the onset of our representation and will be clearly outlined in our client agreement.
Potential Case-Related Costs: While our attorney’s fees are contingent upon a successful outcome, it’s important to understand that personal injury cases may involve certain costs as they progress. Some common costs include:
Court filing fees
Expert witness fees
Medical record procurement fees
Deposition and court reporter costs
Trial exhibit preparation
Postage and communication charges
Other case-specific costs
However, we understand that you may have concerns about paying for these costs upfront. Thus, we advance these costs on your behalf and are only reimbursed from any recovery we obtain for you. If there is no recovery, you owe us nothing for these advanced costs.
Our Commitment to You:
We want you to focus on healing and recovery while we handle the legal complexities of your case. Our contingency fee structure is our commitment to representing your best interests without adding financial stress. It ensures that we are motivated to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Rest assured, if we don’t win, you won’t have any financial obligation to us for attorney’s fees or the advanced case-related costs.
If you have any questions about our contingency fee structure or potential case-related costs, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to help.
