What Are Contingency Fees?
Experienced Boston Personal Injury Lawyers
Law Office of Steven R. Whitman, we operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that
you only have to pay us if we are successful in recovering a monetary amount. If we do win, then our attorney fees will come out of the final settlement.
We agree in advance to accept a fixed percentage (usually 33%) of the compensation
you receive. In return, we cover all upfront expenses, including filing
fees, depositions, and fees for copies of medical records.
You don't have to worry about out-of-pocket costs or your ability to pay.

Why Do Clients Prefer Contingency Fees?
- Zero upfront costs
- Zero out-of-pocket costs
- Zero attorney fees if we lose your case
- Zero risk
A contingency fee agreement is beneficial to you because it allows you
to fight for justice and for monetary damages, no matter what your financial
situation. Because your lawyer will only get paid if he or she wins, then
you know he or she will be exceptionally motivated to help you not only
succeed but to maximize your award. Unlike other firms who decide to charge
a flat rate regardless of how much work they do, it is in our best interests
to make sure you get the highest compensation possible. With this much
invested, your odds of winning are high.
A word of caution: personal injury firms that do not work on a contingency
fee basis can charge extremely high fees. Firms that have lots of experience
(like ours) typically charge an hourly rate, which can cause you to rack
up some really large attorney bills. Complicated cases such as product
liability cases can result in fees that exceed $100,000.
