How We Get Paid

By now, you’ve probably reviewed several pages on our website that offer ‘free case reviews’ or ‘no fee, unless we are successful for you’ and you may be thinking ‘how do these guys make money?’

So here it goes. Every single case we handle is done on a contingency fee basis. Under a contingency fee arrangement, our office receives a percentage of the total recovery for you. We charge 1/3 (33.33%) on most of our personal injury and medical malpractice cases. In workers compensation matters, we charge a 20% contingency fee based primarily on a lump-sum recovery for you.

When you retain our office, you will sign a written contract which sets forth the terms of our representation and clearly states what the fee arrangement is for your case. You will receive a copy of this document for your records.

What About Expenses?

Each case we handle requires some out-of-pocket investment on our part in order to prosecute the case. Examples of common types of case expenses include:

  • Medical Records
  • Police Reports
  • Expert Witness Fees
  • Medical Reports
  • Court Filing Fees

Our office pays for these expenses as we are invoiced by the provider. We use an in-house accounting program to track the expenses on each case.

We do not make any money on our clients’ case expenses. We only seek reimbursement of these expenses when we are successful on your behalf. If there is no recovery on your case, our office will absorb the expenses and will not seek any contribution from you.

At the conclusion of your case of your case, you will receive a ‘closing statement’. The statement will show a full breakdown of the case settlement or verdict including attorneys’ fees, itemized case expenses and any medical liens (example: health insurance or treating physicians). The closing statement will show exactly how much money you will net from your case. An example of a closing or settlement

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
