Contingency Fee Arrangements

You don't pay a cent for your legal representation from the Walch Law Firm until we get you paid. Not one penny. Of course no amount of financial compensation will ever make up for your loss and we know that. What a contingency fee arrangement does is help to ensure that there is no additional financial stress placed on you and your family during this emotional time.

Some of your questions about wrongful death contingency fees answered:

So I hire the Walch Law Firm and don't pay anything at first?

That's correct. Part of the benefit of working with our law firm is not only our years of experience and track record of success but also the benefit of not paying anything up front—not a dime. Under a contingency fee arrangement our firm pays for absolutely every expense that comes with your case until you recover. We'll even pay for your gas and lunch whenever you come meet us at our offices.

Everything from setting up and conducting depositions to filing fees to expert witnesses will be completely covered by us. In the end, we only get paid when you get paid.

How much do I end up paying?

Only once you recover you will pay a very traditional legal fee (usually around 33% of your total recovery after legal costs) that will be a percentage of your total recovery. At the end of your case or settlement, the opposing side (whether it is an insurance company or an individual or both) will write a check to us for the total amount in which we will then take out our percentage and the rest goes to you. All of this and more will be explained to you during your initial free consultation with us.

What are the benefits of a contingency fee arrangement?

Contingency fee payment structures are a popular way to hire a personal injury attorney because of everything discussed above- you aren't out of pocket until there is something in your pocket! When you lose a loved one, it can be a tremendous financial hit and paying out of pocket for an attorney may not be an option. Not having to take on any type of additional debt (or simply not worrying about a monthly bill) is the major benefit of a contingency fee arrangement. Additionally, knowing that you only pay when you recover is also a benefit of this type of fee structure.
