If We Don't Win, You Don't Pay!
At the Law Office of Robert L. Ward, we don't accept payment unless
you receive a settlement or verdict in your case. This method of charging
keeps us extra motivated to help you with your case and work for the highest
settlement possible. Hiring an attorney can be a gamble if you aren't
sure what the outcome of your case is going to be. With contingency fees,
you can remain confident that if your case is a loss, you won't be
set back financially.
What are contingency fees?
Contingency fees are dues paid to a lawyer out of a percentage of the plaintiff's
earnings in a litigation case. For example, if you sue a truck driver
and receive a $1 million settlement, a lawyer operating on contingency
fees will be entitled to a percentage of the settlement. Clients often
love contingency fees, because they don't ever have to pay out of
pocket. Instead, the money comes out of their settlement or verdict.
