Kansas City’s Protzman Law Firm believes in offering flexible fee agreements. We often work with a split fee agreement or a reduced contingency negotiation. We pride ourselves on offering sophisticated legal representation under flexible contingency and blended fee agreements. What do these terms mean to you?
Fee splitting agreements occur when an attorney meets with a client but believes that the client would be better served by another attorney. If we cannot help you, we will do our best to connect you with a proper attorney for your matter.
A reduced contingency percentage is an alternative lawyer fee agreement, and may allow you to keep more of your injury settlement money or court award in your pocket under certain circumstances. For example, where the client agrees to pay the case expenses during the work-up of the case, we may be able to agree to reduce our standard contingency fees, since the client is bearing some of the risk of the litigation along with us.
Blended fees in our practice occur where we might take a reduced hourly rate for our time spent handling the case as well as a reduced contingency fee. This generally requires a client who is capable and willing to pay as the case moves along and, in return, they are able to keep more of any settlement or judgment that might occur at the conclusion of the case.
