What Does it Mean if an Attorney Says There is “No Fee if we Don’t Win Your Case”?
by breauxlaw | Uncategorized | 0 comments

If an attorney says there is “no fee if we don’t win your case,” this means that the attorney is representing you on a contingency basis. Contingency means there is no cost to you until the case is won or settled. Yes, that is right. Zero cost.


You might be asking yourself, “But I thought attorneys are expensive! This is a trick, right? Where’s the small print?”


In the United States, attorneys are able to charge contingency fees. The purpose of this is to give people who need access to the legal system the ability to have an attorney on their side at no upfront cost. The attorney simply waits to get paid a percentage of the settlement, judgment, or verdict.


Your next question might be, “But what if something goes wrong? What if there’s no settlement? Will I then get a bill?”


If you’re a client of Breaux Law Firm, the answer to this is a resounding NO.


That’s Right! No Bill, Even if we Lose! Why?


At Breaux Law Firm, we believe in our clients and in our cases. We consider taking on the representation of clients an investment in the clients and in ourselves. Many hours of work? No fee? Thousands in expenses? No bill. We do our best, with many years of experience representing victims in personal injury and wrongful death cases, to make sure we have a strong chance to get a good recovery for our clients.
