Dealing with the fallout from a serious injury is almost always stressful. Two concerns are often immediately voiced by our new clients: when will I get better and how will I meet my financial obligations during my recovery? We recognize these concerns are paramount and do everything we can to help. We understand that clients who are injured and cannot work are most worried about paying the rent or mortgage and putting food on the table. The last thing a client needs during this time is a bill for legal fees at the end of each month.
It is for this reason that we work on a contingency basis for the vast majority of our clients. What this means in simple terms is that we charge you no upfront legal fees or disbursements. Instead, we earn our fees upon the successful completion of your claim either by way of settlement or judgment in your favour. Our fee is based on a percentage of the amount recovered for your claim - what is commonly called a contingency agreement. If we are unable to obtain a settlement or judgment in your favour then you owe us no legal fee. It's that simple.
Of course, we also offer prospective clients the option of retaining our services based on our hourly rates with an upfront retainer payment and intermittent billing. It's your choice.
When you schedule an initial consultation with one of our lawyers - which is free even if you choose not to retain our firm - that lawyer will explain our contingency fee agreement in detail to you. So call Wolfe Lawyers or complete our online contact form to schedule an appointment today.
