Fees
  • Free Consultation
  • Credit Cards Accepted
  • Contingent Fees
    Contingent Fees In certain types of lawsuits—such as personal injury, collections and auto damages—the lawyer who represents the person suing may agree to accept a part of the money the client recovers as the fee for services. Such an arrangement is called a contingent fee. Under the lawyer's ethics rules, the lawyer and client must enter into a written fee agreement at the outset of the representation, stating what portion of the recovery the lawyer will receive. The fee is generally fixed at a percentage of the recovery. An additional percentage may be added if the matter is tried again or appealed to a higher court. In a contingency fee contract, you and your lawyer agree that the lawyer will not get paid any fees unless you win your case.

5 Questions Answered
Q. what does uninsured motorist coverage cover exactly?
A: Typically, uninsured motorist coverage in Florida will pay economic and non-economic damages resulting from bodily injuries sustained in a motor vehicle collision when the defendant/tortfeasor's insurance is insufficient or nonexistent. Examples would include medical bills, lost wages, paying & suffering, among others. Retaining an attorney is always a good idea, so please find a qualified professional in your area for a more detailed explanation.
Q. My wife was in accident not her fault & settlement is 25k 8,333 att fee 521 cost 5,223. Med Net 10,900
A: Without many facts—that is a very typical breakdown of a settlement disbursement in Florida for a car wreck case.
Q. I was staying at my long time friends home. He got upset with me chanved locks n kep all my personal items and CAT!
A: This may be both a criminal and civil matter. In Florida, there are generally no "self-help" evictions. If your pet or belongings are also being held without your permission, a crime may have been committed. It is wise to report this to a local law enforcement agency and contact a landlord-tenant attorney to preserve your rights.
