Contingency Agreements – Paying for Legal Representation
Prospective clients are often worried about how they can afford to hire an attorney to protect their legal rights in the workplace. Fortunately, our firm represents employees almost exclusively on a contingency fee basis. This means if our firm agrees to represent you on a contingency fee basis, you do not have to pay us anything upfront and you will not owe us anything for working on your case unless we obtain a recovery for you.
Contingency fee agreements are a great tool for, both, employees and lawyers alike. The contingency fee ensures the incentives are aligned between the client and law firm representing the client—the attorneys only get paid if you, the client, get paid. For additional information about contingency fee agreements, we wrote another blog post (here) explaining how the contingency fee works in more detail.
