2. HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO PAY?

ANSWER: We only charge if you receive a recovery. This is referred to as a contingency fee agreement. The Florida Bar Association Rule 4-1.5(f) provides guidelines for attorneys to follow. The Rule authorizes the following:

If Settled Before A Lawsuit is Filed:

Up to $1 million = 331/3%
$1 million to $2 million = 30%
Over $2 million = 20%

After A Lawsuit Is Filed And Defendant(s) Deny Liability:

Up to $1 million = 40%
$1 Million to $2 Million = 30%
Over $2 million = 20%
