No Fee Pledge
We aren't paid
unless we win your case
Personal injury cases can be expensive. In addition to the actual legal representation
itself, there are many other costs involved. These might be costs for
obtaining medical records, hiring medical experts or liablity experts,
covering court filing fees, depositions expenses, and much more. After
suffering serious injury in an accident, with the resulting medical bills
and time off work, most people simply do not have the money to pay for
You don't have to. Our firm puts up the money for these expensenses.
That's because our
Long Beach personal injury attorneys work on a
contingency fee basis. That means that our clients do not pay us any upfront fees for legal representation.
We get paid at the end of the case, out of the money we collect for you.
The payment we receive is a percentage of the settlement or verdict amount.
Furthermore, we specifically offer a "No Fee Guarantee," which
means that we do not stick clients with a bill for any costs if their
cases are unsuccessful. While many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency
fee basis, many of them do not have this added protection.
Our No Fee Pledge
No Upfront Charges. We do not want you to have to turn to sub-par legal representation simply
because you cannot afford a high-quality attorney. We work on a contingency
fee basis, which means that you pay nothing up front to hire us. We front
all of the costs on your case. We are reimbursed on those costs later,
out of the money we recover for you. Our fee is a percentage of the settlement
or verdict. Should the case be unsuccessful, we take the hit on the costs;
we do not ask for reimbursement from our client.
No Fees for an Unsuccessful Case. We are paid attorney's fees and reimbursed on the costs we spent
only if we successfully recover compensation through settlement or a verdict.
In other words, if we collect nothing for our client, then we are paid nothing.
Straightforward Terms. Our No Fee Pledge does not come with any hidden fees. The terms of our
contingency fee are clearly laid out in our retainer agreement. We want
you to clearly understand how we are paid, with no surprises.
Free Consultation. In addition to being able to work on a contingency fee basis, our clients
also benefit from the free consultation our lawyers provide. At absolutely
no charge, accident victims can meet with attorneys Daniel McGee or Catherine
Lerer to discuss their case and their legal options and potential outcome.
We are flexible and want to make it convenient for our clients, so we
are able to meet with you at any time and location that is convenient for you.
Fee Reduction When It's Called For. This is what really sets us apart from other personal injury law firms.
If we represent the family of someone who was killed in an accident, or
we represent a catastrophic injury victim, we routinely reduce our fee
if it turns out that there is insufficient insurance to pay the claim.
We do this because it's the right thing to do, and because we put
our client's interests ahead of our own.
While we cannot guarantee results, we can assure you that our seasoned
personal injury attorneys are ready to use our decades of experience to
fight for a positive outcome in your case. Lawyers Daniel McGee and Catherine
Lerer have over 40 years of collective experience, and we have successfully
obtained compensation awards in the million-dollar and multi-million-dollar
range. Whether you were injured in an
pedestrian accident, or other type of accident, we are here to help.
