The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer’s credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
Case outcomes typically depend upon a variety of legal, factual, and circumstantial factors unique to each case. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome regardless of any similarities to any other legal matter.
While Advocate generally maintains joint responsibility, most cases of this type are referred to other attorneys for principal responsibility.
In most cases Advocate and the attorneys with whom Advocate refers cases of this type are paid legal fees for their professional services solely on a contingency fee basis. The contingency legal fee typically consists of a portion of the recovery the attorneys help obtain for the client, and will be detailed in the written Retainer Letter Agreement that the Client must sign before Advocate and/or the law firm we refer the matter will begin representation of the Client. Contingency fees are not permitted for certain types of cases. In addition to the contingency legal fee, depending upon the nature of the case and/or the jurisdiction(s) involved, there also may be court costs and various case related expenses (such as for consulting and testifying experts) plus additional expenses related to the claim or legal action. Costs and expenses will be computed before or after expenses are deducted from the recovery, in accordance with applicable state law and the Retainer Agreement. Depending upon state law, certain court costs and case expenses may be the responsibility of the client, regardless of the outcome of the matter.
