Explanation of Contingent Fee Agreement
This is an explanation of your Contingent Fee Agreement with us. Please read it and
sign it before you sign the Agreement.
The Contingent Fee Agreement says:
1. We agree to handle your case.
If we handle your case to completion and do not recover any money for you,
you do not have to pay us for our services.
If we handle your case to completion and recover some money for you, you
must pay us for our services. Our fee will be a percentage of what we recover
for you. The percentage is set forth in the Contingent Fee Agreement.
If we advance money for filing fees, witness fees, doctors’ reports, court
reporters’ services or other expenses on your behalf, you must repay us whether
the case is won or lost.
You may cancel the Contingent Fee Agreement by notifying us in writing within
24 hours after you sign it.
If you cancel the agreement within the 24-hour period, you will have no
obligation to us.
I have read the foregoing explanation before I signed a Contingent Fee Agreement
with [Name of Firm].
