Contingency Fee: Filing a Lawsuit Won't Cost You a Penny!
The Oakes Firm charges a contingency fee to handle your case. This is the ideal situation for you. We pay all the costs associated with your lawsuit without you ever having to put up a penny of your own money. In exchange, we receive a fee - usually between 33% and 40% - of your overall settlement or trial proceeds, plus the costs we fronted on your behalf. In the event that you do not settle or win at trial, you owe us nothing. In other words, your attorney gets paid only if you win.
