I only charge on a one third basis in car and truck accident lawsuits because that is the best way of making sure I do my best for you.
If my fee is based on a percentage of your total recovery, it makes sense that I will do everything I can to get you a good settlement; the more you get, the more I get.
Technically, I have considered other fee structures. I remember once where I agreed to represent a client for 40% of the recovery, because his case was going to be more difficult than most. And sometimes, where there is a low settlement offer, and it is clear that filing suit or going to trial is not going to result in my client getting substantially more money, I will charge less than one third, so that I can make sure my client gets a fair deal.
But I’ve never had a client complain that a fee of one third was too much. They like it, because, unlike an hourly rate, they don’t have to pay my bills on a monthly basis. And they know that there will be money to pay my fee. And – most of all – they know that I will work as efficiently as possible, to get the most money for them.
I’d love to talk with you about this. Other lawyers refer their clients to me. And if you decide you‘d rather hire someone else, that’s OK. My phone is 513-621-4775.
Because all situations are different, and because there may be other facts pertaining to your case that I don’t know about, you should not rely on this answer for legal advice. I am not your attorney, and no lawyer client relationship has been formed. All discussions are limited to Ohio law unless otherwise indicated. And past performance cannot be used to predict future results.
