We offer flexible fee structures to meet the needs of our clients, consistent with the nature of the case. There are several types of attorney fee arrangements:
(i) time based, (ii) fixed, (iii) contingent, or (iv) combinations of these types of fee arrangements. "Time based" means a fee that is determined by the amount of time involved such as so much per hour, day or week. "Fixed" means a fee that is based on an agreed amount regardless of the time or effort involved or the result obtained. "Contingent" means a certain agreed percentage or amount that is payable only upon attaining a recovery, regardless of the time or effort involved. Be assured that we will work with you to arrive at the appropriate fee arrangement for your case.
