When tragedy strikes and your family is faced with not only the stress and difficulty of dealing with accidental injury or wrongful death, but also the economic disruption that comes with it – lost time from work and unplanned medical expenses – most families do not have the resources to hire qualified attorneys to protect their interests. In recognition of this, we work on a contingency fee basis.
What is a contingency fee basis?
We are paid a percentage of whatever is recovered.
If there is no recovery, there is no fee.
This means that:
- We only accept cases that have merit
- We only accept cases that demonstrate potential for a significant enough recovery to justify the devotion of the time and resources of our law firm
- We work very hard to ensure the largest possible recovery for the client, consistent with the goals, desires, and best interests of our clients
In general, we advance all of the costs required to effectively prosecute your case. Under the Illinois Rules of Professional Responsibility, these costs must be repaid to the firm when your case concludes. Therefore, we are very careful to spend only as much as is necessary to ensure success for your case.
This is part of our commitment to you and your family. In addition to devoting our time, resources, and skills to your case, we are standing behind our work by promising you and your family that if we do not recover anything for you, we do not get paid.
No Recovery, No Fee – it’s that simple. That’s our guarantee to you.
