Personal injury matters are handled on a contingent fee arrangement.
In a contingent fee arrangement, our office agrees to accept a fixed percentage (33%) of your overall recovery. We also advance all costs associated with your case. In other words, if you win your case, our fee and all expenses advanced on your behalf will come out of the money that is awarded to you. If you lose your case, neither you nor the lawyer will get any money, but you will not be required to pay our office for the legal work that was performed.
This arrangement makes quality legal representation available to everyone. It also allows individuals to pursue meritorious claims against corporations and insurance companies who have enormous financial resources to fund litigation.
Contingent fee agreements are governed by the law. Our contingent fee agreements strictly adhere to the rules by the Massachusetts Rules of Professional Responsibility. See Mass. R. Prof. Conduct 1.5(c).
