No Recovery, No fee
At the Law Office of Monica Wilburn a person who is injured in an accident does not pay attorney fees until the case is resolved and the monetary compensation is collected. If no money is ever recovered on behalf of the client, he/she does not pay a fee. This is called a “contingent fee agreement.” The fee is contingent upon the case being won and money recovered.
Usually the agreement calls for the lawyer to receive a percentage of the amount recovered for the client. The lawyer typically agrees to pay all costs from the beginning of the case until it is resolved. The costs include filing fees, investigator’s bills, doctor’s reports, etc.
We do not expect to be paid until the case is over. All fee arrangements are in writing so you know what to expect.
