At the Schiffmann Law we operate on a contingency fee basis. When we settle your claim, our fees are paid as a percentage of your settlement. We will explain the terms of the contingency fee agreement with you when we meet to discuss your claim. You will never be required to pay us any legal fees until your injury claim is resolved. You will not have to pay any fees up front. Our fees come as a percentage of whatever compensation we obtain in your case. In every case, our retainer is based upon a mutually satisfactory financial arrangement that is fully explained in writing with a case example provided. There are no surprises at the conclusion of the case.
