How does the lawyer get paid?

QUESTION:

How does the lawyer get paid?

AND THE ANSWER IS:

We work on a contingency fee basis.  Most people have never hired a lawyer and don’t know what that means.  Contingency means we only get paid if we obtain you money.  As I like to say, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Why you might ask, would we take on a legal matter without a guarantee of being paid?  In fact, very few lawyers will represent you without some guarantee of payment.  Contingency attorneys are different.  We’re in it with our client and when the client loses, we lose, and when the client wins, we win.  It is that simple.  The reason it has been such a successful business model for Chappell Smith and Arden is because of the skill and experience of our lawyers.  We have more than one hundred years’ combined experience in handling just these types of cases.  So we’re pretty good at quickly determining if the case is “winner or a loser.”
