How to Hire A Lawyer in Georgia, FAQ: How much does The Millar Law Firm charge up-front for my dog bite case?

Published February 12, 2018 by Bruce Millar

How to hire a lawyer in Georgia for a dog bite case?  At The Millar Law Firm, our attorneys handle many Georgia dog bite cases and understand your concern about paying legal fees on top of the medical bills you are dealing with after a serious dog bite injury.  If we are able to accept your case, we do not charge an up-front fee.  Any fee you pay us will be a percentage of the compensation we obtain for you through a negotiated settlement of your injury case or verdict from a Court or Jury.  You won’t pay anything if we don’t recover money for you.

We believe that representation on a contingency-fee basis is a win-win for our clients.  You do not pay legal fees unless we win the case and collect money for you. If we don’t win the case, you have had a full investigation of your claim without cost to you.

When you win, our legal fee will be an agreed-upon portion of the compensation paid to you. In most cases our fees are 33.33% of the amount recovered if no lawsuit is filed, and 40% after a lawsuit has been filed.

Our goal is to help our clients, not simply to “make money” from you.  We screen and evaluate all cases carefully.  If we honestly think that you will be better served without an attorney, we will let you know immediately.  Not all cases need an lawyer.  Those that do usually find that after the legal fees and cases expenses are paid, they come out much further ahead than had they tried to represent themselves.

The Millar Law Firm’s attorneys have obtained more than $100 million in past verdicts and settlements.  This includes successfully representing adults and children in dog bite cases.
