Search #8 of My Blogs: “Contingent Fees”
This is search # 8 of my blogs, “Perspectives of a Small Town Lawyer” and “WV Lawyer – Tips and Techniques”. This robust blog is for the WV legal consumer. It has 1200 pages and 340 articles and 22 “hits” for the term “contingent fees”. Lawyers will perform a variety of services for fees that are not guaranteed, based upon a percentage of the total settlement or recovery.
Key is acuity in selecting, building, settling, or trying the case. Contingency fees can be earned, in personal injury, insurance bad faith, medical malpractice, premises liability, industrial injury (“deliberate intent”) and professional malpractice.
But not in family law matters such as child support, alimony, or equitable distribution.
Innovative lawyers are unbundling services, using credit cards, and coming up with other innovations in order to remain relevant to the legal consumer.
Here are some of Burton Hunter’s ideas. Search also for “unbundling”, “future of the law”, “family law”, etc. for other ideas. Please write with feedback and questions.
What’s with this “search # __” format? I have come up with common searches of my blogs and have been sharing them because the rich content should not scroll out of sight because it was written a while ago.
With 45 years of experience, I try to write on subjects that effect the most people. My hope is that people will search for these topics when they encounter serious legal challenges in their lives.
