No Fee Unless We Win
Affordable Rates. Proven Success.
No one ever expects an attorney to be anything less than expensive. In fact, most people assume that attorneys are altogether unaffordable. Although there are countless lawyers and firms that charge more than the average American can afford, there are attorneys whose fees will not break the bank. The legal team at Shook & Stone understands the need you have for quality representation and will focus on your case instead of the bottom dollar.
Types of Attorney Fees
One form of attorney fees is the hourly rate. This option is very difficult to track, especially for the client. The lawyer will usually send the client a detailed monthly bill outlining the hours spent on their case, what was done, and how much the client owes. These rates can be hundreds of dollars per hour in some cases and have a wide margin of error. An attorney could accidentally charge their client for more hours than were spent on their case, or might even do so intentionally in rare and extreme cases. By charging a contingency fee, the margin of error is practically eliminated and the client will not suffer loss.
Flat-rate fees are also quite common for attorneys, where a set amount is charged regardless of the time spent on the case or its outcome. Flat rates offer very little motivation or accountability for lawyers since they know exactly how much they're making, no matter what. This might also encourage them to rush your case instead of providing quality attention and representation, since they may want to fit as many cases as possible into a period of time in order to make more money. With a contingency fee, no such temptation exists since the fee depends on a successful outcome.
Understanding the Contingency Fee and Its Benefits
Contingency fees consist of a percentage of the final recovered amount. This means that the client does not have to pay a dime out of their own pocket, since the fee is paid out of the amount won for the case. The attorney is also motivated to win the highest possible amount since their fee will be higher, as well. Call our firm today if you are in need of determined and skilled legal representative.
