If you’ve been investigating attorneys, you’ve probably noticed that some lawyers, like Bryan Caulfield, work on contingency. You might have even heard catchy slogans like “we don’t win unless you do” or “you don’t pay unless we win.” But how do these attorneys run their businesses or make a living?
When a lawyer who is working on contingency takes your case, they have a reasonable expectation of winning it. They also make an agreement with you, before proceeding, that they will accept a fixed percent of whatever you are awarded. According to the American Bar Association, attorneys usually take one third of whatever damages their client receives. This may seem insignificant or unsustainable, but if an attorney has a track record of winning million or multi-million-dollar cases, like Bryan, they should always be able to afford the upfront costs of a new case. Contingency agreements are most prevalent in personal injury law because they tend to “level the playing field.” For example, eliminating preliminary costs might allow someone filing a workers’ comp claim to receive the same quality of representation as the company they are filing against.
Attorneys aside, the legal world is expensive. While contingency fees allow you to postpone the costs of representation, you may still be responsible for court filing fees, costs related to witnesses, and other charges. Fortunately, some attorneys consider these types of expenses. With Bryan Caulfield’s contingency plan, for instance, a client will not have to pay any fees or costs unless they receive damages.
