LA Trust Litigation Attorney | Contingency Fees
I’m Mike Hackard with Hackard Law. I handled my first estate litigation case over 40 years ago. It was a disputed Will.
I learned a lot from that case. Since then, I’ve worked on several thousand cases on a contingency basis. We’ve found that trust, estate, and financial elder abuse cases often lend themselves to contingency arrangements.
California contingency fee agreements generally provide that a plaintiff is only responsible for paying their attorney if they resolve, settle or win the case. The payment is a percentage of the settlement or winnings.
These cases closely tie the lawyer’s interest with those of their client. Contingency fee cases help beneficiaries maintain an equal footing in our courts against those who have wrongfully taken trust or estate assets.
Contingency fees mean victims of wrongdoing can have an experienced trust litigation attorney in their corner.
If you would like to speak with us about your trust or estate case, call us at Hackard Law 213-357-5200. We’ll be happy to speak with you.
