Considering A Contingency Fee Agreement

We understand that litigation can be expensive and cost prohibitve. Unfortunatley for many parties that may have a valid claim the traditional law firm model of hourly billing can be too expensive for the party looking to start a lawsuit. At the lawfirm of O'Sullivan & Zacchea PLLC we may work with our clients on a contingency fee basis. This allows our clients to start a lawsuit when they normally might not be able to. It also gives our clients a level of comfort knowing that our firm is working as hard as we can to obtain a positive result.

What Type of Cases May Qualify for Contingency Work?

A contingency-fee can be appropriate in a wide range of business disputes. Here are some examples where a contingency fee agreement may work:

  • A small or medium sized business that alleges a breach of contract or other harm by a larger organization but is lacking in the funds and resources to fight back.

  • When a partnership or company under a tight budget constraint that needs an attorney to help them bring an action in order to try and recover damages they are due.

  • Breach of contract claims..

  • A party that has filed a Mechanic’s Lien but has not yet collected any of the funds they are due.

  • Someone who has issued a promissory note but has not yet collected the funds due to them under the terms of the note.

It is not our goal to make money from our clients. We want to make money for our clients. For this reason whenever it is possible we enter into contingency fee agreements with a client. A contingenct fee agreement where our fee is base on how much we obtain for our clients reduces the exposure and downside for our clients and places a premium on achieving an optimal result quickly and efficently but there can be no settlement unless you agree to the terms. It is our policy not to accept a case unless we believe in it and beleive that we can obtain a positive results.
