Do Miami Personal Injury Attorneys Charge Retainer Fees?

I realize that after having your world turned upside down as a result of a car accident or injury case, the last thing you want to do after being hurt is pay a retainer fee.  Your focus is on getting better, getting back to work and regaining your health.  Most lawyers who handle accident and injury cases do not charge a retainer fee.  Some, however, will expect you do come up with a deposit for costs up front.  I am not one of those lawyers.

If an attorney in Miami tries to charge you anything up front or do your accident case for anything other than a contingency fee, you may want to consider speaking with someone else.  If I believe in your case enough to take it on, I will be willing to accept a fee once we have successfully settled or won your case that is “contingent” with the compensation that you obtain. 

So you are aware, personal injury lawyers generally charge a contingency fee of 33%-40% at the end of the case.  We don’t charge hourly or retainer fees.
