The Accident and Injury Lawyers at Cannon Law, P.C. will give you the option of choosing an hourly fee arrangement, a flat fee for services or a contingency fee. With an hourly fee you pay a set amount for the time spent working on your case by our lawyer and staff. A flat fee is a onetime charge for handling your case and may be appropriate in cases that are not complicated. A contingency fee may be appropriate when you cannot afford to pay an hourly fee or flat fee.
When you agree to a contingency fee, you are agreeing to pay us a portion of whatever amount of money the lawyer recovers on your behalf. All contingency fee agreements must be in writing, signed by the client and state the method by which the fee is to be determined, including the percentage that will be paid to the lawyer in the event of settlement, trial or appeal. In addition, all contingency fee agreements will include an explanation of how court costs and other expenses will be deducted from any recovery. If any money is recovered, you will receive a written accounting at the conclusion of the case stating the outcome of the case and showing the amount you receive along with an explanation for all other expenses and fees deducted from your recovery.
