Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a lawyer cost?

The usual fee arrangement is 33.33% if your lawyers settle before litigation. If the lawyer has to file suit, their take increases to 40%. If they collect punitive damages or go to trial, the fee can go as high as 50% of our case. A lawyer with many cases to resolve in a year can also cross the $200,000 mark annually.

Do lawyers get paid if you win a case?

This means that the attorney will not receive his or her legal fees unless you win or settle your case. Additionally, some attorneys are willing to bill clients at a certain rate up to a maximum amount. This way, you will only be required to pay a certain amount even if the attorney spends additional time on your case.

Can I reduce my attorney's fees during the settlement process?

It is highly advisable to have any needed reductions agreed upon before you reach settlement with the insurance company. If you hire an attorney, the fees and costs will be taken from the settlement proceeds. If your attorney is working on a contingent fee contract (as we do) that means the fee is “contingent” upon success of the case.

How much can a lawyer charge for a personal injury settlement?

If a lawyer settles your case without a lawsuit, he or she cannot charge more than 33 1/3% of the total personal injury settlement. In this instance, I take 33 1/3% of the total settlement. I only handle personal injury cases in Florida. We also are reimbursed (paid back) for the costs that we front (advance for your claim).
