How Can I Pay for an Attorney if the Loss of My Loved One has Resulted in Financial Distress?

In many cases, attorneys are willing to take on wrongful death claims on a contingency fee basis. The Flaxman Law Group legal team, for example, takes on cases on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that you do not pay money up front and you will only pay if and when the attorney recovers money on your behalf. Once you reach a settlement or when your case is won in court, the attorney will take their fees and expenses out of the proceeds of settlement. In many cases, attorneys also offer free initial consultations so that you can discuss fees and fee arrangements before you make any final decisions.
