Many people worry about the high cost of legal fees. Your first consultation with a Schmidt-Salita Law Team is free. Schmidt-Salita Law Team handles most Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation cases on a contingent fee. This means that the injured person does not have to pay attorneys’ fees unless there is a settlement. Then you will only pay a percentage of the settlement for attorneys’ fees and costs. This arrangement provides you, the injured person, with the security that never ends up “in the hole.”
Some law firms advertise “No fees until you recover.” That is another way of describing the contingent fee. It has also been referenced as “a poor man’s key to justice.” By way of analogy, many folks know that a real estate agent works to find a buyer for a house that is for sale and gets paid as a percentage of the sale price, once the house is sold. The same is true for the lawyer contingent fee.
