How Much Are the Attorney Fees?
Contingent Fee Agreement
We recognize the financial burden legal fees and costs can prevent everyday people from access to the civil justice system. Malley Law offers contingency fee agreements, where you pay nothing if you do not receive compensation. We front the courts costs, expert costs, filing fees and all other expenses associated with pursuing a personal injury claim. The attorney fees are not paid until a recovery is made, and the costs we front are reimbursed to the firm at the time of recovery out of the client’s share. You will not have to pay any out of pocket money to hire Malley Law Firm under a contingent fee agreement.
We offer a contingent fee agreement in our personal injury cases.
Malley Law offers other types of fee arrangements depending on the desires of the client or the type of legal service performed. We offer flat rate, hourly, and hourly/contingent fee blend type arrangements.
Flat Rate Legal Fee
Flat rate is exactly what it says. You pay the firm a flat fee, a certain amount of money, and we handle the entire case to conclusion after the fee is received.
Hourly Fee Agreement
An hourly fee agreement is where the client pays the firm an hourly rate to perform legal services. The client pays the costs associated with pursuing or defending the case. We bill our litigation time in tenths of an hour with entry descriptions under the American Bar Association Codes. We send a bill at the end of every month. We begin work when the client executes a Retention Agreement. We stop work when you tell us.
This is a blend of both. Many business clients want to manage their litigation expenses with a lower hourly rate but do not want to give up a percentage of the money they are owed. We offer a blend of an hourly rate lower than our customary rates along with a contingency fee. The client will pay hourly as described herein and as an exchange, Malley Law accepts a lower contingent fee. The percentage fee and the hourly rate are discussed, and we work out an arrangement the client prefers.
