All consultations with the lawyers at our firm about your Oregon Car Accident, Motorcycle Accident, Or Bicycle Accident case are free. If we accept your case, unless otherwise agreed, we also take on the expenses associated with recovering on your behalf. You pay nothing, and we don't get paid until we recover on your behalf. At that time, we will pay expenses from the recovered amount. Then our firm is paid a percentage of the recovery at the end of the case that is consistent with rules of professional responsibility and local ethics rules (depending on the specific situation and fee agreement, typically about 33%, or 40% if the matter goes to trial or arbitration). The client takes the rest of the recovered amount. This arrangement is known as a "contingent fee" - we don't get paid unless you do as well.
