Injury Lawyer Frequently Asked Questions

Will it cost me money to hire your firm?

If we don’t recover for you, you pay nothing. Plain and simple. If there is no recovery, you pay no fees and no costs. That’s because at the Law Office of Kerri C. Smith, P.A., we work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we only charge you if we obtain a recovery for you. If we do obtain a recovery for you, either by judgment or settlement, our fee is paid as a percentage of the total recovery, and costs are deducted from the recovery.
