Lawyers in New Jersey charge clients either on an hourly basis or on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee is when an attorney does not charge you a fee until and unless you recover something for your harms and losses.
We handle all car accident cases on a contingency fee basis. If you choose to hire our New Jersey car accident law firm on a contingency fee basis, you don’t have to pay anything and we will never send you a bill.
We only get paid if we’re able to recover on your behalf, and the percentage that the attorney gets paid is controlled by New Jersey court rule. Our court rules specifically have a breakdown as to what attorneys working on a contingency basis earn in the state of New Jersey.
In sum, we never charge a client anything at all whether it’s costs that are out of our pocket or our fees for actual work performed. If we’re unsuccessful, which is very rare, the client does not have to pay us a dime.
