No Fee Unless You Win
In the event that there is no recovery, no fee will be charged and you are not responsible to repay the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C. for any expenses incurred or disbursements made.
Computation of Fees
You may choose to have us pay all costs and expenses related to your case. Attorneys’ fee will be 33 1/3 percent of the gross recovery before deducting those costs and expenses. We are entitled to an amount equal to such costs and expenses incurred from the proceeds of the sum recovered.
On the net sum recovered after deducting from the amount recovered expenses and disbursements, including but not limited to, expert testimony and investigative or other services properly chargeable to the enforcement of the claim or prosecution of the action. You are responsible for the payment of all costs and disbursements at the time they are incurred. If during the enforcement of the claim or during the course of litigation, the attorneys should advance such costs, disbursements and/or expenses that will not constitute a waiver of the your responsibility to pay said costs, disbursements and/or expenses, which shall always remain your responsibility. Under such instance, the client will promptly reimburse attorneys for the costs, disbursements and/or expenses which the attorneys advance on client’s behalf. In the event, after election to do so, the client fails to advance the necessary case costs, disbursements and/or expenses, or fails to promptly reimburse the attorneys for such costs, disbursements and/or expenses which the attorneys have advanced, the attorneys may, at attorneys’ sole option, pay or absorb such costs, disbursements and/or expenses on the client’s account. In such instance, the attorney shall notify the client that the attorney is advancing the case costs, disbursements and/or expenses and that the fee shall be calculated on the gross recovery in accordance with the terms of Option 1, as above.
For strictly illustrative purposes, if there were a recovery of $1000 and the case costs and expenses total $100, the recovery would be allocated as follows:
Gross Recovery $1000.00
Case costs & expenses 100.00
Net Recovery (minus costs) 900.00
33 1/3% Attorneys’ fee 300.00
Net to Client $600.00
Return to Client of Expenses $100.00
You may choose to pay all costs and expenses related to you case as set forth in Option 2 herein. I understand that the attorneys’ fee will be 33 l/3 percent of the net recovery after deduction of those costs and expenses properly chargeable to the enforcement of the claim or prosecution of the action.
In computing the fee, the costs as taxed, including interest upon a judgment, shall be deemed part of the amount received. For the following or similar items there shall be no deduction in computing such percentages: liens, assignments or claims in favor of hospitals, for medical care and treatment by doctors and nurses, or self-insurers or insurance carriers, which shall remain the responsibility of the client, to be paid out of client’s share of the proceeds.
