Common questions people have about contingency fee lawyers
Here are just some of the most common questions about contingency fee lawyers in Colorado we often see at Bell & Pollock, P.C.:
What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee is simply what people pay the lawyer if they win. Lawyers who work on a contingency fee do not charge clients attorney’s fees if they do not obtain a financial settlement or verdict.
Do the lawyers work for free?
If a lawyer does not recover a settlement or verdict or any financial compensation for a client, the answer is yes. The client does not pay any attorney’s fees.
Do the lawyers charge any fees?
Again, attorney’s fees are only charged if the lawyer successfully resolves the case.
Will I be charged by the hour?
No. You don’t have to worry about billable hours or other financial matters if you hire a contingency fee attorney to represent you.
What if I don’t need to go to court?
An experienced lawyer in Colorado can do more than just help you file a lawsuit or represent you in court. They can negotiate with insurance companies, help you fill out forms and make sure your case receives the attention it rightfully deserves.
