How Contingency Fees Work

Contingency fees are agreements where an attorney only collects a fee if the client wins a case. This fee typically comes out as a percentage of the final award. At Mazaheri Law Firm, we accept some employment law cases and most personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. Many clients often prefer such arrangements because it makes legal services more accessible, especially for those without the resources to pay for an attorney upfront. Learn more about the advantages of contingency fee agreements below.

We may be able to help you with the following compensation types:

  • No upfront payment or out-of-pocket fees: Your attorney will sometimes advance costs associated with the case so you do not have to pay anything out of your own pocket. Other times, the attorney may ask you to deposit a small amount each month to keep in your client account to pay for filing fees, expert fees, depositions, and other litigation-related costs.

  • No legal fees unless we win: If your attorney is unable to obtain a monetary recovery, then you do not owe any legal fees.

  • No large legal bills at the end: Because legal fees are collected out of your awarded compensation, then you won't be surprised with any large legal bills once your case is complete.

  • Your attorney is motivated to win: If your attorney loses a case, then he or she won't be paid. You'll know your attorney is working hard to not only win, but to win big.

Our firm does not take every case that comes in. We do a risk assessment and evaluation prior to taking on a contingency case due to the nature of only getting rewarded on legal fees by recovery. It is important to have evidence including police reports, handbooks, emails, medical records, and/or any other relevant information with you at your consultation so that we may accurately analyze your case. If you have questions about how contingency fees work and whether this arrangement is available for your particular case, contact our team. We can review the details of your case and discuss more about our fee structure.
