We handle most auto accident cases on a “contingency” basis, meaning that we only get paid if we recover money for you. Our fee is one-third of your recovery. For example, if we settle your case for $9,000, our fee is $3,000 and you get $6,000. If we have to file a lawsuit and go to Court, we may ask for a higher contingency, depending on the complexity of your case.
Under State Bar rules, file expenses (such as deposition costs) and out of pocket costs (such as the cost of medical records) must be paid by you, although our standard practice is to pay for these items as they come due, then recover them from settlement proceeds.
In most cases, a contingency fee is a good way for you to obtain the services of an experienced lawyer without having to come out of pocket. In a contingency fee arrangement, we, as the lawyer, share the risk that your case will not generate any money or very little money.
Our goal is to make you happy, to have the privilege of serving you as a long term client and to count on you for referrals. If you ever have a question about our fees, you should call Jonathan or Jodi Ginsberg (770-393-4985), or e-mail us using the form on this page.
