Contingency Fees: Making Personal Injury Law Work For All

I don’t know any other area of the law except personal injury where the scales of justice are so evenly balanced for both the rich and the poor. How much money you make, how big your bank account is or how many stocks and bonds you own makes no difference when you’ve been hurt.

The reason: How we’re paid for our work. The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya works on a contingency fee basis, the details of which are spelled out in paperwork you sign at the time you hire us as your attorneys. It’s a written contract that says we will take as our fee a percentage of any settlement or judgment the opposing party pays you. More simply, it means we don’t get paid unless we get you a settlement or judgment. If we do, we get paid; if we don’t, we go to bed hungry.

There are a number of advantages this arrangement has for our clients. One, there is no risk that you will have to go through months of turmoil and stress, wind up without a settlement or lose at trial, and then wind up owing us a heft attorney’s fee.

Two, you can be assured that you probably have a pretty good case if we’re willing to be your partner. We work for you because we’re confident we can bring value to your case and help you out – and not just in terms of money. We have an outstanding network of doctors and specialists who can help you get well.

And three, a contingency fee arrangement really motivates us to get the most recovery for you that we can. Because our fee is based on how well we do our work, you can be sure we’ll put in the time and effort your case deserves.

The bottom line is this: The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya takes a big gamble on your case, and we could lose our investment in time and resources if we don’t win. Because of that we consider a lot of factors very carefully before accepting a case. When we do, we’re sure you have a pretty good case – and we’re committed 100% to working on your behalf.
