How does my attorney get paid?
At The Law Offices of Nicole Hessen, P.A., we provide legal services on a contingent fee basis. That is to say, we only get paid if we secure benefits and/or a settlement on your behalf. There are certain situations in the law that provide the insurance company pay our litigation fees and costs. You will not get a bill from us and you will not have to pay any attorney’s fees unless or until you settle your case and the fees would be paid out of the settlement proceeds. The current law provides for the attorney to be paid a percentage fee (20% of the first $5,000; 15% of the next $5,000; and 10% thereafter) on your settlement and benefits.
