How We Handle Payment


At Markoff Leinberger, our Chicago consumer rights lawyers understand that the prospect of going through an extensive, expensive legal claim is daunting. And when you’ve been the victim of consumer fraud, paying a lot of money for anything might not be possible.

But we’re believers in the power of the legal system to help innocent victims receive justice. And we don’t believe the courts should be barred to all but the richest Americans.

That’s why we frequently operate on what’s called a contingency-fee payment system. Under this payment method, we pursue your case without an hourly payment from you and based on our ability to win an award for you. Put simply, if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

If you want to speak to an experienced consumer rights lawyer about your claim, please call Markoff Leinberger today at 312-726-4162 today for a free consultation.

The Contingency Fee System

Under the contingency fee payment system that our consumer rights lawyers use, an attorney’s payment doesn’t come until the end of the case. And most importantly, it doesn’t come at all if you don’t win a verdict or settlement.

We’ll discuss precise numbers with you in person, but the payment system works by providing the attorney with a percentage of your final settlement or verdict amount or a payment from the defendants. Our firm is also reimbursed for the costs it incurred while pursuing your case.

Our consumer rights lawyers have an incentive to pursue cases that are viable and reasonable. This means we’ll be honest with you at your initial consultation about your prospects, and only move forward with a claim if we feel you have a sound case under a consumer fraud law.

Finally, we are always transparent about our fees and payment methods. We’ll make sure you have a complete understanding of what you can expect in terms of payment. Honesty is important for a proven law firm like ours.

If you need a proven consumer rights lawyer to help you pursue your claim, please contact Markoff Leinberger by phone at 312-726-4162 or online today for a free consultation.
