FAQs On Personal Injury

Q: Is there a fee to evaluate my case?

A: There is no fee to discuss your case with an experienced attorney. In fact, a member of the firm will be happy to come to you to discuss your case in detail, and let you know if your case has value.

Q: Do I have to pay anything if I decide to file a lawsuit?

A: You will never be charged a penny during the pendency of your case. On personal injury cases the firm "earns" its fee only upon settlement or verdict. There are no hourly fees or bills for the firm's expenses associated with your case. We will collect an agreed upon percentage of the settlement or verdict at the conclusion of the case.
