What you tell our attorneys remains protected by the attorney-client privilege, even if you don’t hire us.
Our fee structure is simple. Like most Seattle personal injury lawyers, we charge a flat percentage of the total gross recovery obtained on our client’s behalf if the case is settled prior to trial. In that case, we will charge one third (33 1/3%) of the gross recovery. If the case goes to a jury trial, our fee will be 40%. It's rare for a case to go to a jury trial, but if it does, the potential rewards are huge, but the preparation is enormous and costly. Either way, you don't have to pay up front. The percentage charged is taken off the top, followed by payments of costs and expenses, balance to you.
This fee is payable only in the event of a recovery and only after that recovery is obtained by our firm. That means that you only pay if you get a recovery. If we don't get a recovery for you, you won't pay any legal fees to us at all.
Reaching a Fee Agreement
As professionals, we recognize that you want a commitment that is binding and meaningful. A fee agreement will be provided to you for your review and both the firm and the client will sign to acknowledge that it is a legally binding contract. No other legal fees will ever be charged for our services, it's all laid out in the fee agreement. No surprises.
