How Much Will My Attorney Charge?

Worried about being able to afford a good attorney? Worry no more because at The Charles Boyk Law Offices you will not be charged a dime out of pocket because we operate on a contingency fee basis. A contingency basis means a percentage of what were able to collect. For example, if we collect $100, a typical fee for an auto accident case might be one third or $33.33. Once again, if it’s a $15,000 settlement the fee might be one third, which is $5000. The important thing to remember is that most people don’t want to pay on an hourly basis because they don’t want to absorb the risk. So you’ve got an attorney without any out-of-pocket risk and the attorney is only taking a percentage of what they’re able to collect. It’s in the attorney’s self-interest and in the client’s self-interest in order to collect the most money possible. Seventy percent of our business is referred by existing clients so our job is to achieve the best possible recovery so we do our job legally and so that we make our clients happy. That way our business for the future comes from referrals from satisfied clients.
