Fees & Costs
Most people are concerned about the fees and costs when seeking a personal injury attorney in California. They fear how much money it will cost them to hire skilled legal talent. They fear the heavy financial burden of carrying the costs of their case.
Most of the best personal injury attorneys in California will work for you on a contingent fee basis, meaning you will not pay lawyer’s fees unless money is collected for you. On its face this sounds great. Don’t be fooled. There is much more to fear.
The standard contingent fee agreement used by the majority of California personal injury attorneys leaves two gapping holes that could cost you tens of thousands of dollars. Be careful. Know the difference between how law firms handle case costs and unsuccessful cases.

- No Fee Unless You Win. As with most of the best California personal injury law firms, you will pay no fee unless money is recovered on your case, it is called a “contingent fee”. Your fee is contingent upon your recovery. No recovery, no fee. Your fee is based upon a percentage of the fee recovered for you. Your fee percentage is based upon a sliding scale and depends upon your case type, duration and its costs. Your exact fee terms will be spelled out precisely in your attorney-fee agreement. *California’s ethics rules require that costs remain the client’s responsibility. Read on, we have a way of taking care of this as well.
- We will advance your costs. We will advance all costs necessary to pursue your case. In some cases this amounts to a couple thousand dollars. If your case was to go to trial, it could easily be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Product defect cases have run over a million dollars in costs. Costs are things like expert witness fees, cost of testing, court filing fees, court reporter fees, deposition costs, document acquisition costs, presentation expenses and so on.
