Cost: It’s something most law firm websites don’t like to talk about. An experienced lawyer can oftentimes make a difference in personal injury cases, but the reputation is that lawyers are expensive. And most of the time that reputation is accurate. Hiring a lawyer can be expensive. But at Steinger, Greene & Feiner, it’s not – in fact, unless we win money for you, hiring us is free.
Different Types of Fees
Different law firms bill their clients differently. Most law firms will charge by the hour, so that the more of their time your case takes, the more you end up paying.
That might be fair in theory, but for accident victims we find that structure objectionable. Whether you were in a car accident, you were hurt at work, or you were injured by medical malpractice or a faulty product, you probably didn’t have money set aside to pay for a lawyer. In fact, most of the people we work with are in the opposite situation: they have medical costs and other bills piling up, and they need help in a hurry.
If we charged by the hour, we couldn’t help most of our clients at all.
Instead, Steinger, Greene & Feiner uses what’s called a contingency fee. Most law firms don’t use contingency fees, but we feel it’s better for the client and makes quality legal help accessible for everyone.
No Fee Unless You Win
A contingency fee means you pay nothing up front – no retainer, no filing fees, no court costs. We’ll even pay for the cost of expert witness help. You pay nothing.
If you end up winning money, then and only then will we charge you a percentage of the money won, plus costs. That means that not only do you pay nothing up front, but the amount you end up paying will never dwarf the amount you won. You’ll always come out ahead.
We call this the No Fee Guarantee® and it has several benefits for clients:
• You have no risk
• Our lawyers have even more incentive to win the largest amount for you possible
• Anyone can afford to hire legal representation
What are the chances you will win a settlement or verdict? That depends on the details of your case, and Steinger, Greene & Feiner will also provide a free case evaluation so you can decide for yourself whether to pursue your claim. This evaluation costs nothing and comes with no commitment to hire our firm. Find out more by contacting us today.
