What Does Contingency Basis Mean?

Handshaking With Lawyer

Are You Seeking Justice Without the Financial Burden?

You’re not alone. Many individuals hesitate to pursue legal action due to concerns about the substantial costs associated with hiring a lawyer. This fear of encountering hefty legal fees can often deter people from seeking the justice or legal support they need. However, there’s an alternative approach that can alleviate these financial worries: the Contingency Basis arrangement. Under this model, you have the opportunity to engage a lawyer without the requirement to pay any fees upfront. This revolutionary concept provides a pathway to access legal assistance while maintaining financial stability, making it easier for you to move forward with your legal case with confidence and peace of mind.

What Does Contingency Basis Mean?

A contingency basis is a client-friendly financial arrangement that allows you to hire a lawyer without paying any upfront fees. Instead, your lawyer’s payment is contingent upon the success of your case. Simply put, if you don’t win, you don’t pay.

This means your legal team is as invested in your case as you are, aligning your interests towards a common goal – victory. It’s a risk-free approach to seeking justice, ensuring that high-quality legal representation is accessible to all, regardless of financial status.

How Does It Work?

  1. Free Initial Consultation: Your journey starts with a comprehensive assessment of your case, at no cost to you.
  2. Agreement on Terms: If your case qualifies, an agreement is made detailing the percentage your lawyer will receive upon a successful outcome.
  3. Pursue Justice: With financial worries aside, your legal team gets to work, employing their expertise and resources to win your case.
  4. Success-Based Payment: Victory means your lawyer receives an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement or award. No win? No fees.

Why Choose a Contingency Basis?

  • Risk-Free: Eliminate the risk of losing money on legal fees if the case doesn’t go your way.
  • Aligned Interests: Your success is your lawyer’s success. This motivates them to achieve the best possible outcome.
  • Accessibility: Makes quality legal representation accessible, promoting justice for all.
  • Transparency: Clear agreement terms mean no hidden fees or surprises.

I was referred by another attorney to Gencarelli & Rimassa, as among other areas of practice, they are experts in medical malpractice. After reviewing my Complaint carefully, Mr. Rimassa determined that I had a viable case. He also had no problem representing me in Warren County, although his office is in Bergen County.As things progressed, Mr. Rimassa kept me well informed at all times, advising me throughout the whole process about what to expect in the proceedings, including depositions, and the timeline of litigation. He was very precise in the information he needed from me and was always prompt in answering my telephone calls and e—mails. Mr. Rimassa was very professional and extremely astute, but he also had compassion for my situation.At one point, the defendant’s attorney offered to go to mediation to potentially settle the case outside of a court trial. Mr. Rimassa tirelessly fought for me in mediation until a resolution was reached that I found very satisfactory. Even after the fact, he continued to work on my behalf to negotiate with my secondary insurance to lower its lien, and was ultimately successful.It was obvious from the start that Mr. Rimassa knows his stuff and is a fighter, going above and beyond for me. I highly recommend both him and his law firm!

Melissa is a great attorney. She has represented our family in several issues that were very critical to the future well being of our financial stability. Her team brings big firm tenacity with boutique firm personablility and responsiveness. She was easy to access with questions and always updated us on the status of our cases. She handled a serious car accident and also a contractor fraud case after Hurricane Sandy for our family . In both cases she understood the law and how it applied to our situation and won against much larger firms on the other side. The results of her work were great and we would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great lawyer.
