How Much Will My Malpractice Attorney Charge?

Most legal malpractice cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only have to pay a fee for the attorney’s services if the attorney gets you a recovery in your case.  If there is no recovery, you owe the lawyer nothing for his or her services.

Under almost all circumstances, you will have a written contract with your lawyer that spells out the details of the attorney’s fee agreement.  The exact percentage charged will vary from state to state and region to region because of differences in state laws, bar regulations, and custom. The average fee is probably between 40% and 50% of the recovery.  If your case is good enough and the damages are big enough, you may be able to negotiate a lower fee than normally charged.  Or, sometimes a hybrid fee may be agreed to that includes both a smaller-than-normal contingency fee percentage as well as a small hourly rate fee that is not contingent on anything and is paid regardless of the outcome.
