A: We accept most, but not all, claims on a contingent fee. That means we get our fee from your eventual settlement. (See: Fees and Expenses) Expenses, such as costs of securing records, experts, depositions, filing fees, and the cost of serving subpoenas, also come out of the settlement or judgment. Sometimes, depending on the financial situation of the client, we do not require our clients to pay their expenses out of pocket. We will discuss these matters with you in detail when you come into the office.
