Contingency Fees

"TIME IS THE COIN OF YOUR LIFE. It is the only coin you have, and
only you can determine how it will be spent.
Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you."

- Carl Sandberg

Another very significant difference is that SO&L regularly considers contingency fee agreements in business, insurance and employment litigation cases.

What is a contingent fee case? Oversimplified, it is a case that we accept with the condition that we only get paid based on the result of your lawsuit.

This benefits clients who are not in a position to fund their litigation out of pocket. While not all cases qualify, and not all clients with qualified cases want to enter a contingent fee agreement, we will evaluate your unique legal problem with no obligation and of course, at no cost.

Examples of cases that often fall into this unique, contingent fee arrangement include:

Insurance Bad Faith; where you have paid your insurance premiums and the insurer (commercial, homeowner, auto, etc.) did not pay your claim fairly, or refused to pay anything.

Employment law; harassment, discrimination, wage/hour violations

Financial Institution/Banking litigation; including lender liability and shareholder suits

Of course, the above are for example only and SO&L makes no guarantee of acceptance of your case in our contingent fee program without a complete evaluation.

Lastly, if you have a case with another attorney, and his or her hourly fees have far exceeded your expectations (this can happen for a wide variety of reasons), and you would like to see if you can transfer the case to us on contingency, call us today.

Remember, the value and importance of time are major parts of every lawsuit!
