Attorney Client Relationship
The materials on this website are for informational purposes only and are not legal advice or legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstance. The reader should not consider this information as establishing an attorney-client relationship. Transmission of or receipt of the information in this site and/or communication with the Firm via email, web form submission, or text message is not intended to solicit or create, and does not create, an attorney-client relationship between the Firm and any person or entity. An attorney-client relationship is not created until you have retained the Firm, complete with documentation, confirming the retention and scope of the attorney-client relationship.
Readers should not act upon this information without seeking professional legal counsel. The Firm reserves the right to decline any representation. The Firm may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with any of our other clients.
The Firm represents clients on a contingent fee basis. If there is ultimately a recovery, attorneys’ fees, court costs, litigation expenses, and healthcare-related expenses are paid from the client’s share of the recovery. If there is no recovery, the client will not pay any attorneys’ fees or be responsible for any court costs or litigation expenses; but the client is responsible for any unpaid healthcare-related expenses incurred. Attorneys’ fees are calculated based on the gross recovery, before expenses are deducted.
