Contingency Fees

What Is a Contingency Fee Policy?

Our Clients Come First at Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn

When facing a personal injury claim, one question people often worry about is whether or not they can afford the help of a lawyer in San Francisco. This is not something our clients at have to worry about. We operate on a contingency fee, meaning there are no fees for a client at our office unless we win his or her case.

There are several reasons why our contingency fee policy benefits you as our client:

  • You don't have to worry that receiving the legal help you need will force you to be stretched even thinner financially, in a time when you may already be dealing with unexpected medical bills and missed paychecks.
  • You can have confidence knowing that our team believes in your case. We are careful to choose cases that have merit.
  • You know we are working our hardest on your case because we are not paid unless we successfully resolve your claim.

Many law firms charge their clients between $250 and $1000 an hour. At RFTM, we do not charge an upfront hourly rate. Instead, we only take a percentage of your final recovery if your case is successful. In many cases, we will also advance any costs associated with litigation on your behalf — such as the costs of investigation, depositions, court fees, experts, and filing fees. In total, these costs can often surpass $100,000.
