Our lawyers do not expect to be paid until the case is over. All fee arrangements are in writing so you know what to expect. Some people may not call an attorney after they are injured in an accident because they believe they cannot afford the attorney’s services. Usually the agreement calls for the lawyer to receive a percentage of the amount recovered for the client. The lawyer typically agrees to pay all costs from the beginning of the case until it is resolved. The costs include filing fees, investigator’s bills, doctor’s reports, etc.
At Akwuba Law Firm, a person who is injured in an accident does not pay attorney fees until the case is resolved and the monetary compensation is collected. If no money is ever recovered on behalf of the client, he/she does not pay a fee. This is called a “contingent fee agreement.” The fee is contingent upon the case being won and money recovered.
