We work on a contingency fee basis, not an hourly rate
At MacGillivray Law, we work on a contingency fee basis, where you do not pay anything until we obtain compensation for you. This means we do not charge an hourly rate for our services. Instead, when your case does settle, or if you are awarded compensation at trial, our legal fees are deducted from the total amount awarded. This percentage ranges from 27% to 35%, depending on the province you live in, the type of case, and how far the claim has progressed through the legal process. We also pay upfront for any expert opinions required to advance your case. This might involve us consulting with an independent doctor or engineer to write a report about your case and be qualified as an expert witness. We cover the upfront cost associated with these reports. We try to recover them from the at-fault party, and they are paid at the end of your case.
Before you settle your case, you’ll know exactly how much you’ll walk away with after all fees and expenses are deducted.
If we do not win your case, you do not pay anything. Contact us for your free consultation.
