What Are the Benefits of the Contingency Fee System?

When choosing a firm to represent you, it is important to look at the payment system that they use to bill their clients. Some attorneys may charge a flat fee up front or have an hourly rate. Others work on a contingency fee system. Simply put, a contingency fee system states that the attorney will not collect a fee unless the case is won. If compensation is awarded, they will collect a percentage of the recovered amount.

Some of the benefits of the contingency fee system include:

  • The best interests of both the attorney and the client are aligned
  • The lawyer only accepts cases that they truly believe are worth pursuing
  • The attorney has incentive to keep expenses low, resolve the case quickly, and recover as much compensation as possible
  • The client doesn’t have to worry about up-front fees or affording services
