Apply for Contingent-Fee Representation
J. Madison PLC represents many Virginia employees who agree to pay us on a contingency fee basis. In these cases, our clients do not pay us fees while we work on their cases, or they pay us a reduced or capped rate. In return, if we help our clients secure a settlement or a verdict, the clients pay us a portion of that amount, normally between 1/3 and 1/2, depending on the case.
But how do we select which cases to take on a contingent-fee basis, and more importantly, will we take your case? Read below to find out.
