Contact An Experienced Attorney
An experienced attorney can save you time and help you secure the best resolution for your case. William John Dipetrillo and Associates accepts Personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning any attorney’s fees would be paid from settlement funds awarded to the client.
We do take pride in our commitment to resolving your case as fast as possible. The fact is that insurance companies are offering less. Your patience and insistence on experienced legal help is the best strategy.
Legal expenses for the case would be paid by the firm and only subtracted out of the settlement funds received. Be careful, some firms charge theses expenses in advance.
The standard contingency fee is 33 1/3 percent or 40 percent, if the case has to filed with the Court. This firm uses a standard Florida Bar contingency contract.
