Fees and Expenses
Our firm represents clients on what is known as a contingency fee basis, also called “No Fees Unless We Win”. This means that our clients do not need to pay any fees for our time or effort in their case unless we are successful in obtaining a recovery for them. If we are successful, our legal fee is a percentage of the amount of the recovery.
Our legal fee starts at thirty-three percent (33%) and may increase depending on whether your case settles early, or goes through trial and appeal.
In addition to legal fees, expenses will be incurred by a client during the preparing and trying of their lawsuit. Some examples of these fees include; court filing fees, nursing home expert witness fees, and court reporter fees for depositions. The ethical rules governing attorneys in Texas, allow a law firm to advance these costs on behalf of their clients. Our firm chooses to advance these costs for our clients so that they do not have to pay anything out of pocket to pursue their nursing home lawsuit.
