This free form may be more for attorneys out there that are looking for a simple form contingent retainer and fee agreement. For our personal injury cases, like most plaintiff attorneys, we do not charge hourly. Rather, we charge our clients on a contingency fee, meaning our fee is a percentage of what we are able to collect on our client’s case. The percentage we charge ranges and depends on the size of the case (lower fee for bigger cases, higher fee for smaller cases — the idea is to make a fair compensation for the work we anticipate doing).
