Frequently Asked Questions

You can find the answers to some common questions below.



When should I speak with an attorney? Can I speak with you without incurring attorney fees?

You should contact an attorney at your soonest opportunity since without an attorney valuable evidence and witnesses can disappear. When you contact us, you will speak with an attorney who will make an initial evaluation of your case. We do not charge for the initial consultation.


What are your fees?

You may have the option of paying attorney fees on an hourly basis or a contingency basis. Our hourly rate varies depending on the nature and complexity of the work you request. Under a contingency fee, we earn attorney fees only if your case is successfully resolved. In most cases where a contingency fee is elected, the contingency fee is 1/3 of the gross recovery regardless of whether the case is resolved by settlement or trial. In medical malpractice cases, the fees are set by state law on a sliding scale basis.


What is my case worth?

The value of your case depends on how a jury perceives it at trial; thus, a serious answer to this important question cannot be given until your case has been investigated, physical evidence obtained, witnesses interviewed, and discovery (such as depositions) taken. You should be cautious about relying on any lawyer who puts a value on your case when you first speak with him. Please see the Disclaimer.
