We represent our class action clients on a contingent fee basis.

That is because the cases we file are based on statutes that provide for “fee shifting,” which requires that defendants pay the legal fees for a prevailing plaintiff, or in class actions that provide that fees are awarded to class counsel from a common fund created upon a settlement or judgment.

We receive a legal fee only if we are successful on behalf of our clients
