A contingency fee is just what it sounds like - a fee that is paid contingent upon money being awarded. If no money is obtained by the lawyer in the case, then the client does not have to pay an attorney's fee. If a monetary award is obtained, either through settlement or verdict, the lawyer gets a percentage of the total recovery. For more information about contingency fees, please give us a call.

$300 --$500. The total amount is dependent on the number of people we sue and service costs.
This varies greatly depending on the type of case, and how strong of a case you have. In general you may recover for:
Economic damages include past and future medical expenses, household services, vocational therapy, property damages, out-of-pocket expenses, and lost earning capacity; and Non-economic damages are those that do not have a monetary amount but still affect the victims’ quality of life.
These include emotional distress, pain, inconvenience, loss of consortium and loss of enjoyment of life. Non-economic damages are generally limitless, but there are exceptions under California law.
