Q Is there a consultation fee?

No. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss your case with you, and there is no charge for this initial meeting. We only work on a contingency fee basis, which means that if there is a recovery at the end of the case, whether through a settlement or a jury verdict, we are paid a percentage of the recovery.

In New York, the standard percentage is 33% in personal injury cases; in medical malpractice cases, the fee is set by the state legislature and there is a sliding scale contingent arrangement: the attorney receives 30% on the first $250,000, 25% on the next $250,000, 20% on the next $500,000, and the attorney's share continues to decrease as more money is recovered.

Q Do I have to pay expenses?
