Do not hesitate to ask the attorney how many personal injury cases they have handled or how many they are currently working. Additionally, ensure that your attorney has trial experience.

The amount that the attorney will recover will usually be in the form of a percentage which will usually be disclosed within an engagement contract or fee agreement with the attorney. Always be sure to read the engagement or fee agreement carefully and ask for clarification to ensure that you understand the terms. At our office, if we do not win, you do not pay.
