How much are your legal fees?
Most of our cases work on a contingency basis, where you only pay if you receive recovery. For those situations where fees are charged, the fees are different for each case. Fees are based on factors such as how complex your case is, if there are disputes, and whether or not the case is tried in court. Please give us a call to get an assessment of what the fees for your particular case may be.
