Have you ever noticed that personal injury attorneys always advertise that they offer free consultations? Yet other attorneys (estate planners, family law, criminal defense) often charge hundreds of dollars per hour. The reason is contingency fees.
Contingency Fees Explained
What is a contingency fee? A contingency fee means an attorney agrees to represent you in exchange for a portion of your settlement.
A contingency fee model causes many personal injury attorneys to carefully consider the cases they will take. If an attorney doesn’t think they can win the case, they probably won’t take it. Likewise, an attorney may refuse the case because they don’t think the settlement (or their portion of it) will be worth their time.
Many victims of minor accidents and especially medical malpractice never receive legal representation or justice because attorneys won’t take their case.
Our Fee Reduction Explained
Most firms charge a contingency fee of 33-40% of your settlement. If you won a $250,000 settlement, most lawyers would take nearly half, leaving you with $150,000 to settle your medical expenses and get vehicle repairs.
Julian Rudolph Law is different. We believe that you deserve more of your settlement. After all, you’re the one whose hurt; we’re just helping you obtain justice.
To help more people get the settlements they deserve, we’ve instituted our fee reduction program and reduced our cut to 25% for cases that don’t go to trial. If we helped you win a $250,000 settlement, you’d take home $187,500. That extra money can make an enormous difference in helping you move forward and return to normalcy.
