A contingency fee is defined as a fee for services, which is only payable if there is a favorable outcome. In law, this occurs when a lawyer obtains a successful verdict or settlement for a client, typically resulting in the client paying an agreed upon percentage of the total net recovery of their case.
At Lewis & Keller, our personal injury attorneys all operate on a contingency fee basis, so there will be no need to worry about being able to afford an attorney because we will not charge you for our services unless a successful verdict or settlement has been made and you recover.

How Do North Carolina Contingency Fees Work?
Simply put, a client will not be charged by our attorneys if the case is lost. Of course, in the case where our client recovers for their losses and damages, we will receive a percentage of that total net recovery. This percentage will be determined before we begin with your case.
As previously explained, a North Carolina contingency fee is a type of payment where there are no added or hidden fees, and no base charges. Thus, there are no upfront charges to our clients when they use this particular compensation structure.
The exact percentage of which a law firm decides to charge is discussed at the time an attorney is reviewing a client’s particular case. In the United States, lawyers are required to fall within a standard of reasonableness. This means that some attorneys may even charge up to 33 to 45 percent depending on the statutory of limitations and professional conduct rules set by their jurisdiction. Furthermore, a law firm that chooses to charge unreasonable percentages could be subject to professional sanctions.
