Here’s the good news! You can afford a great attorney with no money up front. I'm here to help you no matter what your financial situation is. I believe that everybody deserves a lawyer who will fight for their rights.
How can I afford to represent people with no money up front? Well, a lawyer is typically paid in one of three different ways by clients:
- Hourly fee. The lawyer is paid per hour for the work that’s done in your case.
- Standard flat rate. The lawyer and client agree to a set fee up front.
- Contingency fee. In this situation, the lawyer doesn’t receive funds until you have a settlement. Filing fees or other miscellaneous costs not directly related to the cost of legal representation are addressed on a case-by-case basis.
If you’re in a car accident in Georgia, you can receive immediate help and work with your lawyer on a contingency basis. That means that your lawyer will only get paid after they get a settlement for you. At that time, the personal injury attorney will get a percentage of your total settlement or the amount that is awarded from the trial.
This contingency fee will come out of the settlement you are granted. The lawyer simply deducts this fee from the amount that you’re awarded, and then you will receive a check for the amount of your award minus the contingency fees.
If the case isn’t settled for any monetary award, you wouldn’t owe the lawyer anything. This empowers you to attain the services of a high-quality, experienced lawyer without worrying about paying anything out of pocket before your case is settled.
