At Gordon & Partners, we offer a free consultation and charge no fees or costs unless we win your case. There are also no upfront fees for our legal team to get started on your case and no upfront fees while we work to win your case.
If we win at trial or secure a settlement on your behalf, we charge a percentage of the compensation that our lawyers obtain on your behalf. The attorney handling your case will explain the exact percentage, which may vary based on the type of case.
Why do Law Firms Work on a Contingency Fee Basis?
Most insurance companies and other large corporations have legal teams that consist of lawyers, paralegals, support staff and more. At Gordon & Partners, we believe that everyone deserves to have high quality legal representation and made the decision long ago to not charge any upfront fees on the personal injury cases that we handle.
We believe that this can help to level the playing field against the at-fault party and the insurance company lawyers that represent them during a damages lawsuit.
What Happens During Your Initial Consultation?
When you meet with us in a free consultation, we will explain how Gordon & Partners’ fees work. This information is also laid out in a contract that you and your attorney sign. In your free consultation, you can ask us any questions you have about our fees, your case and the legal process.
What Happens After the Case is Settled or the Jury Reaches a Verdict?
When the case is settled or tried, you will receive a closing statement, which will state the gross amount of compensation we obtained for you and the costs.
If you have outstanding medical fees or a lien with your health insurance company, we can help you resolve those matters, which will also be reflected on the closing statement. We will not disburse any funds to ourselves or anyone else until you have reviewed and signed the closing statement.
What Other Types of Fee Arrangements are There?
Law firms that require payment up front usually charge hundreds of dollars an hour for working on a case. This includes the time spent answering the phone and responding to emails. Clients may not want to call to check in with a lawyer because they want to avoid extra fees.
Lawyers who charge up front may also require a retainer fee. This could range anywhere from several hundred dollars to several thousand or even tens of thousands of dollars.
