A contingent fee allows you to hire an expert lawyer from The Dolan Law Firm, without paying any money down, and without paying by the hour. Most lawyers charge two hundred ($200.00) to five hundred ($500.00) dollars per hour for their services. As the saying goes, talk is cheap unless a lawyer is talking! The Dolan Law firm only gets paid if you receive compensation for your damages either through a settlement or after a trial. We are paid a percentage of what we recover for you. Usually the fee ranges from 33 1/3% to 45% depending on the type and complexity of the case, whether a lawsuit has to be filed, and when and if your case settles or goes to trial. Most contingent fees are not set by law but are negotiable. Contact us for an evaluation of your case.
Our contingent fees are set out in a contract with you that explains how our fee is calculated and when and if that percentage changes as the amount of lawyer time increases. Contact us so we can provide you a free evaluation.
Some fees are set by law and must follow a statutory formula.
We advance costs for handling your suit for filing fees, obtaining your records, hiring investigators and experts, for court reporters, jury fees, and other matters necessary to prosecute your claim. We have the resources to go the distance based on a solid history of winning. In addition to our contingent fee we are reimbursed for these expenses on completion of your case.
If only receive a fee if we win. We like to be paid that’s why we work harder to win the maximum damages for our clients.
