HOW WE GET PAID, IN PLAIN ENGLISH
At Vanden Heuvel & Dineen, S.C., your initial consultation is always free.
We handle most personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means we receive a percentage of the amount we recover for you. If we do not recover money for you, we don’t receive a fee.
In addition, we may consider handling your personal injury case on an hourly basis, if you wish. This means you pay us for each hour we work on your behalf. If you are interested in an hourly arrangement, please ask and we will be happy to discuss it with you.
From our experience, we have found that the contingent fee arrangement is what most of our clients select. This is because most injured victims cannot afford to pay the cost of hiring a lawyer by the hour. In addition, where the arrangement is for a contingent fee, Vanden Heuvel & Dineen, S.C. will likely advance the costs of preparing your case until your case is concluded.
The Wisconsin State Bar has rules of ethics that we must follow. As a result, you are legally responsible for the costs we pay on your behalf. The money we advance will be deducted from the settlement amount. However, you will be glad to know we do not charge interest or any other fee for advancing this money. This is one more way we show you that we are committed to helping you get the money you deserve, and to make sure justice is served.
