Will I Have to Pay Any Legal Fees for a Sexual Abuse Lawsuit?
You can contact us for a free, confidential consultation. After this confidential discussion, if we determine that we can help you pursue a legal claim for the child sexual abuse you suffered and you wish to retain us as your attorneys, we will discuss in further detail the contingency fee agreement for your individual case.
What Does “Contingency” Mean?
Depending on the state where the case may be filed, many attorneys who work on a contingency fee basis collect the fees for their work at the end of the case based on a certain percentage of the monetary recovery. The percentage of the contingency fee varies and if you have specific questions about this, one of our attorneys can speak with you confidentially and explain in more detail what this means.
