Fee Information

Most of our Tennessee personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. This means that our fee is deducted from the client’s recovery. If we do not recover for the client, then we are entitled to no fee as long as the client allows us to handle the case through conclusion. However, if we incur expenses in handling a case, those expenses are the responsibility of the client.
Unlike many attorneys, we often pay the expenses and do not seek reimbursement from the client until the entire case is resolved which means no out-of-pocket costs to the client. Many attorneys require clients to pay expenses as the case proceeds. Also unlike many attorneys, we do not charge clients for everyday expenses such as long distance, copy costs, fax costs, or mileage on local travel.
