Contingency Fee Basis

At Clark and Martino, P.A., we give you one important reason to call us for a consultation: all first consultations are free. Whether you hire Clark and Martino, P.A., as your Tampa car accident lawyer or your Tampa brain injury lawyer, you are welcome to contact our offices for a free consultation to discuss the merits of your case. Once you decide to hire a Tampa personal injury attorney at Clark and Martino, P.A., we take almost all cases on a “contingency fee basis.” Basically, a contingency fee basis means you pay no lawyer’s fees unless you win a settlement your case. If you do win your case, the “contingency fee” would be a percentage of the money you receive from the case. The percentage varies somewhat according to a few different factors, such as how much money you win in your case. In most situations, the contingency fee is roughly one-third of the settlement. In addition to the contingency fee, each client also agrees to pay for costs related to his or her case. These costs may include:
  • Filing fees
  • Long distance telephone charges
  • Travel expenditures
  • Courier fees
  • Copying, printing, and postage expenses
  • Private investigator and expert witness fees
To help you fully understand the contingency fees and other fees in your case when you become our client, you will be given a Contingency Fee Agreement. This agreement clearly outlines what contingency fees you can expect in your case. The Contingency Fee Agreement also outlines your rights as a client, for example, your right to know how much money will be spent in preparing your case and your right to make the final decision regarding the settlement of your case.
