With disability cases, our law firm does not require any legal fees paid upfront by you. If we decide to work together, we will never ask you for money upfront. You may have heard the familiar statement echoed by many American attorneys – we don’t get paid in less you get paid. The statement sounds cliche, but it is in fact true. What this statement means is that lawyers often work on contingency, meaning the legal fees paid to the law firm are contingent on a successful recovery in the case.
If we decide to work together on your disability case, the agreement that you enter into with Lalande Employment Lawyers is called a contingency agreement. Since most claimants that are denied disability cannot afford to hire a lawyer, and pay them by the hour, contingency agreements allow lawyers to take a reasonable percentage of any settlement or jury verdict and, if there is no recovery, we guarantee that we will not charge you any legal fees whatsoever.
The benefit of the contingency fee is that allows a person who does not have a lot of money to pay a disability lawyer at the beginning of the case. Instead, the contingency fee levels the playing field and allows claimants that are suffering financial difficulties to hire the best lawyers and obtain the highest quality of disability legal services to help them get their disability benefits back on track.
Once you decide to hire our Hamilton disability lawyers, the agreement will be discussed with you in detail. The agreement will be in writing, as mandated by Ontario ethic rules, the percentage of recovery, costs paid to you and other expenses that will be deducted from recovery will be fully explained to you so you have a full and clear understanding before proceeding in your case.? If there is no recovery, we guarantee that we will not send you any type of legal account whatsoever.
For terminated employees, we understand that you may be suffering from terrible financial difficulty and hardship. We can no doubt accommodate your situation and work together with you in coming to an agreement on how your legal fees should be paid. The important thing is that you do not need to give up your rights in an employment law case just because you?re worried about paying legal fees.
We have various fee arrangements that we can discuss, including contingency fees, deferred payment plans and hourly fee agreements.
Many times, if we decide to work together with an employee on a wrongful dismissal case, or if you?ve been the victim of discrimination because of your race, religion, sex, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation etc. and this played a part in your termination, we will can offer to enter into an employment contingency agreement with you , which would allow you to not pay any money up front, but instead, pay a fixed percentage of the amount of compensation we recover for you.
The employment law contingency agreement will be negotiated ahead of time between you and our Hamilton Employment Lawyers and with our firm – there will be no hidden fees, ever. What we negotiate at the start of the case is what you will be paying, and not a penny more.
