Understanding Contingency Fees
The first and biggest reason why people hesitate to retain a lawyer is because they believe it will be too expensive. It is true that many firms charge exorbitant legal fees and hourly rates, but this is not always the case. At Lenahan Law Firm, the client is our main concern. We choose to provide excellent legal service and representation without demanding an unnecessarily large payment. How do we do this? We do it by providing our services under contingency fee agreements.
The Benefits of a Contingency Fee Agreement
Basically, a contingency fee is a legal payment based on a percentage of the amount a lawyer recovers for his or her client. The percentage is agreed upon when the attorney takes the case and is paid out of the money won once the settlement is closed. Now, you may be thinking "What if nothing is recovered in my case?" Don't worry. If we don't win your case, you don't have to pay us a dime. We'll even front the court costs and other expenses, which will be repaid out of your recovery, as well.
There is another major benefit to contingency fee agreements besides the fact that they are always affordable. Since an attorney receives no payment for their work unless they win the case, they are far more motivated to recover the highest possible amount for your case than if their payment is guaranteed through hourly rates or a flat-rate fee. At Lenahan Law Firm, each Dallas injury attorney will be wholly dedicated to fighting for you and obtaining maximum compensation for your personal injury or for the wrongful death of your loved one.
