What is a contingency fee?
A Contingent Fee is a fee you owe a lawyer only in the event he brings about an agreed upon result. When you hear a lawyer say “You don’t pay a penny unless I get you a settlement,” the lawyer is talking about a contingency fee.
Contingent fees are fairly high, ranging up to 40% of the settlement. Despite this high percentage, contingent fees are a good deal for many people because they otherwise would not be able to afford a lawyer to help them, and because a good lawyer can usually negotiate a significantly higher settlement that more than covers the lawyer’s fee.
