CONTINGENCY AND MODIFIED CONTINGENCY FEES
A contingency fee arrangement means that you will not have to spend money out of your own pocket for attorney fees. We only earn legal fees if we are successful in obtaining a recovery for you.
We handle a limited number of Will Contest and Trust Contest cases on a modified contingency fee basis. We also handle all injury cases on a contingency fee basis.
