ANSWERS TO COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS BELOW:
A recent study by the National Center for State Courts found that for contract’s cases an average of 367 hours was spent taking a case from inception to trial and appeal. However, 61% of those hours were spent in pretrial, trial, and post-trial appeals. Since it is no secret that well over 95% of cases settle without ever making it to trial, in determining the average cost of litigation for most cases it is probably better to look at 39% of the total number of hours or 143.13 hours per case through settlement.
Every case is different. Some cases take much longer to prepare and others take far less. On certain cases, our firm may decide to charge you little to nothing in up front cost and take a percentage of the total recovery. Due to there being many options in legal pricing, it is wise that you consult with an attorney before deciding that it is too expensive to proceed with a lawsuit. Please call our office to discuss the options that are available to you on your case.
