Legal Services on a Contingency Fee Basis

You won't have to pay any up-front fees!

Most personal injury and wrongful death plaintiffs are unable to afford attorney fees unless or until they obtain a settlement from the insurance company or a verdict in court. After all, plaintiffs are normally facing large medical bills for treatment of a serious injury, in addition to the fact that they are probably trying to figure out how they will make ends meet during a period when the family has been deprived of its source of income. Even if they did not have to deal with these problems, most people do not have the financial resources to comfortably afford paying out of pocket for legal representation.

For this reason, and to ensure access to justice for anyone with an injury claim, Duncan Law Firm operates on a contingency fee basis. In simple terms, this means that I do not get paid unless you get paid. Our interests are aligned - we both desire to maximize your recovery.

Cost-Effective Representation

Unlike some other personal injury firms, Duncan Law Firm applies a contingency fee to your "net recovery" as opposed to your "gross recovery." The reason that this matters to you is that contingency fees are paid as a percentage of the compensation that the client receives. An accident attorney who collects fees as a percentage of the gross recovery will be taking a larger amount than one who collects from the net recovery.

Beware! Some lawyers will deduct their fee from the total settlement amount or verdict amount (gross amount), then reimburse themselves for the costs of representation, and then finally pay you. This is a gross recovery formula, and it results in substantially less money for you.

Maximizing the Value of Your Accident Claim

I recognize what an enormous impact that a serious accident can have on your life and I want to help you receive the maximum available compensation. For this reason, I do not place my interests ahead of your own. At Duncan Law Firm, the costs of litigation are reimbursed first and then my fee is applied to the net recovery amount, resulting in more money in your pocket. Rather than having to figure out how you can afford to pay for legal representation out of pocket, contingency fees allow you to hire an attorney without having to worry about the cost.
