Working On A Contingency Fee Bases
George Ilchert: "In any personal injury case here in New York, they are always handled on a contingency fee basis. Our fee is one-third of the recovery. We advance all of the expenses for the case."
William Ryan: "When we’re retained by a client, there is no out-of-pocket expense on the client’s part. If they decide to retain us to handle their case for them, the standard retainer agreement that they sign says that they will not have to pay a dime unless there is some type of recovery in the case. That way, there is an incentive not only on the attorney’s part, but on the client’s part to hire the best attorney they can."
