Attorneys' fees are the amount of money that the attorneys, staff, and law firm are paid for the legal services they provide. In most personal injury and wrongful death cases, attorneys' fees are based on a contingency. Under this arrangement, attorneys' fees are based on a percentage of the settlement or verdict in the case. If the case is lost, we do not recover a fee, although you may have to pay some expenses or costs. The contingency fee percentage varies and some lawyers offer a sliding scale based on how far along the case is when it is resolved. A one-third fee (33 1/3%) is common if your case is not litigated.
