What is a Contingency Fee Payment System?

At Markoff Leinberger, we understand that many victims of consumer fraud suddenly find themselves in need of legal representation but unable to pay a qualified lawyer’s hourly rate. That is exactly why we work on a contingency fee basis.

What does this mean for you? Put simply, it means we don’t earn any money if you don’t.

How Contingency Fees Work

A contingency fee agreement is a payment system that eliminates hourly fees. Instead of billing hourly, we charge a percentage of your final settlement or award, should you win one.

In other words, payment for our services is dependent, or “contingent” upon the successful conclusion of your case. You don’t pay if your claim is unsuccessful. This takes the stress out of hiring an attorney. There are no hidden costs and no surprises.

The contingency percentage will be made clear to you before you sign any agreements with us. Markoff Leinberger believes in transparency and clear communication.

Benefits of Contingency Fee Agreements

Our Chicago consumer fraud lawyers represent clients on a contingency fee basis to provide equal access to the legal system. Everyone, no matter their financial means, deserves the chance to pursue a valid claim against even the largest and most powerful businesses.

Additionally, the contingency fee provides us an incentive to take the cases with a real chance of success. This means you can trust in our judgment when we advise you on the appropriate action to take at your initial consultation. And because we don’t get paid unless you get paid, you can rest assured that we will work tirelessly to get you the best possible result.
