How Can I Afford to Hire an Attorney?
People often ask me how they can afford to hire an attorney if they don’t have enough money to pay an attorney by the hour.
Work on contingent fee agreements
Most attorneys work on contingent fee agreements.
If you get an injury and need to hire an attorney, you should know that most attorneys work on contingent fee agreements.
It means that payment to the attorney is contingent upon you making a recovery.
In other words, if you recover, we get paid. If you don’t recover, we don’t get paid.
I hope that’s answered your question about whether or not you can afford to hire a lawyer.
