What Does ‘No Win No Fee’ Really Mean?

What is No Win No Fee?

No win no fee means that you don’t have to pay for your lawyer’s time if they can’t get you a settlement offer. In these agreements, a law firm will take on your case and will only charge you if they get you a settlement offer – irrespective of the amount. This type of arrangement is a great option for people who don’t have the financial resources to pay legal fees on a monthly basis. A good lawyer will not take on a case unless they are confident they will add value to your claim.

How Does No Win No Fee Work?

When you hire a lawyer and they successfully win your case, you’ll receive a settlement. It’s unlawful for lawyers to charge a percentage of your settlement as a fee. Instead, they will calculate their fees based on an hourly rate, which is usually agreed upon upfront, and can vary depending on the complexity of the case. However, it’s important to be aware that in certain situations, the legal fees may exceed the compensation you receive. This can happen because technically, any settlement over $1 counts as a “win.”

Our lawyers will not take on a case unless they are confident they will add value to your claim. Think of hiring a lawyer as an investment. This means, if we can get you more compensation than if you were to represent yourself, we’ll advise you on the best path forward. A reputable firm won’t take on a case if they don’t see that there has been enough meaningful impact on your life. In some cases, it may not make economic sense to hire a lawyer. Our job is to enhance your settlement by evaluating the impact your case has had on your life in a significant way.

So, Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

When you’re dealing with a legal case, it can be tough to keep your emotions in check. That’s where a good lawyer comes in – they can help you stay objective and fight for what you’re entitled to. They can also help you assess whether a settlement offer is fair and whether it’s worth going to court to pursue your case further.

Think of hiring a lawyer as an investment. You want to make sure you’re getting a good return on your money. That’s why it’s important to find a lawyer whom you trust to advise you on the merits of your case. A good lawyer will outline the risks and benefits of pursuing your case, and help you make a decision that’s in your best interests. They’ll assess whether the impact of your claim on your life is meaningful enough to make it worth pursuing legal action.
