What We Do – Exclusive Focus of Slip and Falls and Trip and Falls

How Much Does it Cost to Hire an Attorney
Many individuals who have suffered injuries are apprehensive regarding seeking legal representation because of the seemingly high costs of hiring an attorney. This may be the fact in many instances: Some attorneys and law firms will ask their clients for an upfront retainer fee or a fee just to review their file. Our law firm is different. We work exclusively on a contingency fee basis meaning that our client will not have to pay for any of our fees or costs upfront. We will only collect our fees and costs if and when there is a financially successful resolution of our clients’ cases. What’s more we have instituted a ZERO FEE Guarantee. This means that if, for whatever reason we are not able to win your case, you do not owe us any money. This policy makes the lawsuit process much easier for the client because the client does not have to take the financial risk of paying an attorney thousands of dollars, and not seeing anything in return. When you hire us, you do not have to pay us unless and until we get you money.
Second Opinion on a Slip and Fall Case
Unfortunately many victims are taken advantage of from law firms and lawyers who lack the experience and resources to handle their claim and maximize its potential value. There are many law firms who are interested in a quick buck, so they will quickly settle your case without spending much time on it, and move on to the next case. For this reason we offer any individual who has an active personal injury claim with another law firm with a free no costs second opinion. We will be able to evaluate your file, determine what went wrong, and expend any and all resources available to us to make sure your case is successfully resolved.
