Cost and Fees - Civil
When it comes to civil cases, such as contracts, injunctions, business representation etc., hourly fees will apply the same as criminal cases. However, in PERSONAL INJURY matters, the fees vary anywhere from 25-40% of the recovery we get for the client. Factors to be considered are things such as what state it is in (i.e. PA or NJ), whether the plaintiff is a juvenile or an adult, whether it is an automobile accident or a products liability case, whether it settles out of court without the need to initiate liigation, etc., etc., etc. In all these matters, the client never pays a cent out of their pocket, and only pay us if we recover money for them. All fees are spelled out in writing, signed by the attorney handling the matter before work is begun.
There are some rare instances where the firm retaines 40% of the recovery. This would be in cases where litigation was commenced, a trial ensued, liability was difficult, etc. There could be almost no circumstance where the attorneys would retain more than that.
Fees are spelled out by the attorneys in writing with no fine print.
The reason fees are posted on this website is so clients can clearly understand what is involved before they even come in.
