What if I Can’t Afford an Attorney?

During a lawsuit, having a lawyer on your side can change the course of your case. An attorney can guide you through your case and help you understand how to get the most compensation possible for your injuries.

Unfortunately, the thought of affording an attorney can be daunting. Many people assume they won’t be able to afford one on top of their other expenses. But a lawyer may not be as inaccessible as you think. Our firm believes we can make a difference in your case, and we want to help you without causing further financial worries.

Contingency Fees

You can expect to find different types of fee arrangements as you look at different firms, but at the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg, we operate on contingency fees. For you, this means your fees depend on winning your case. Our firm will help you file your claim, and we will fight for you in court. If you don’t receive compensation, however, you won’t pay anything.

Contingency fees are typically a percentage of your settlement or court award. For example, if your contingency fees are 25 percent of your award, we will subtract that percentage from the compensation we win for you. In Wisconsin, certain laws place a limit on contingency fees to make sure your costs are reasonable.

You Don’t Pay Until We Win

When you work with our firm, you can expect your fees to be reasonable and clear at the start. Using contingency fees with our clients shows that we believe your case will succeed and that we’re here to make sure you can afford your lawsuit.

Expenses after an accident may be high, but your claim shouldn’t add to those expenses. Our firm is dedicated to getting your compensation first—before you have to worry about more expenses.
