Question: “Will you handle my case on a fixed fee arrangement or some other method to control my expenses?”
Answer: Yes. Many types of cases, like simple wills, or real estate settlements can be handled on a flat fee basis. Costs of more complex matters can be controlled by this office binding itself to a firm estimate of costs and a written Retainer Agreement.
Question: “Will you handle my case on a contingency fee arrangement?”
Answer: Yes. Some cases, like personal injury or collection matters, lend themselves to a contingency fee arrangement as the outcomes are more uncertain. Other cases, in which the risks and outcomes can be more readily ascertained, are more economical if handled on a fixed fee or hourly arrangement. You should be aware there are limited types of cases, like criminal matters, in which an attorney is not permitted to charge on a contingency fee basis.
