Contingency Fees

At Zinda Law Group, our attorneys work on what is called a contingency fee basis. What this means is that an attorney will take your case for free, and will only be compensated if they win at trial or successfully settle your case.

If you end up losing at trial, the attorney won’t require you to pay them anything. This means that you won’t have to pay anything upfront in order to hire an attorney, and will only have to pay them a portion of whatever your case ends up settling for or what you end up being awarded at trial.

Attorneys who work on a contingency fee basis will often charge a percentage of the final award amount of your case. Typically, this is around 30 to 40 percent.

For example, if your case settles for $1,000,000, an attorney who works on a contingency fee basis end up receiving $350,000 of that settlement, while you will still have $650,000 to put towards your recovery. Any amount that you receive in excess of your economic damages can be spent as you wish.

The biggest benefit to contingency fees is that clients don’t have to pay anything until the end of the case. Some lawyers may make exceptions for costly expenditures, such as hiring an expert to testify, or conducting scientific examinations, but will disclose that to you ahead of time to ensure there is transparency.

Does My Attorney Charge Hourly?

Some personal injury attorneys charge an hourly fee. These can vary greatly, but may fall between $100 and $500 per hour.

Attorneys that charge hourly fees pose a significant risk to clients, as they will still charge even if they do not win.
