What is a Contingency Fee Agreement?

Fort Worth Personal Injury Attorneys

If you have been injured because of another party's negligence, the last thing you should have to worry about is your finances. If you hire a lawyer who operates on an hourly rate, your legal fees can add up quickly. Even if you have the money for legal fees, there is a chance your case may lose, or you may obtain a less than optimal recovery.

Wouldn't it be nice if your lawyer could represent you on a no win, no fee basis? With a contingency fee agreement, this is exactly the condition you receive. At the Law Office of James M. Stanley, we operate on a contingency fee basis because we believe that everyone should have a shot at justice and compensation, no matter what their income level.

How it Works

We set a percentage upfront of the amount we will receive from your award (usually 33.3%). You will sign a contract that details how we will be paid and the percentage we both will receive if your case is successful.

Under a contingency fee agreement, we advance all costs for litigation, including:

  • Depositions
  • Filing fees
  • Investigators
  • Medical records
  • Trial exhibits
  • Witness fees

You pay nothing upfront, and only pay us if we recover money on your behalf. This arrangement is simple, and ideal for clients because it means that your attorney is motivated to win and maximize your recovery. Otherwise, we won't get paid. You have absolutely nothing to risk or lose.
