Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury cases always begin with a free initial consultation. During the consultation, you and Tom will discuss the particulars of your case, and he will offer an honest assessment of your case. If you decide to proceed with the case, Tom accepts fees on a contingency basis. This means that Tom won’t accept a fee unless he is successful with your case.
The usual fee is one third of the total recovery of your case, in addition to out of pocket expenses if the case is settled out of court. When the case does not settle prior to filing a formal law suit, the fee assessed is 40% of the total recovery of your case, in addition to out of pocket expenses. Before a case proceeds to trial, Tom reviews the case with the client, enabling them to make an informed decision every step of the way.
General Litigation, Mediation and Insurance Cases
Costs vary but the firm’s philosophy does not. Tom ensures each client is always aware of the financial risks of their legal action.
