Thompson O'Neil Law Firm Philosophy
The Attorneys at Thompson O'Neil Law Firm, located in Traverse City, Michigan, specialize in personal injury, insurance and employment disputes and civil litigation. We represent only seriously injured victims — not insurance companies.
Many lawyers think they can handle a personal injury, wrongful death or employment rights claim.
However, the truth is they are frequently inexperienced and really specialize in something else, so more often than not, they end up calling us for advice. Handling personal injury cases and business litigation isn't just "part" of what we do — it's ALL we do and all that we have done for decades. That is why lots of other attorneys and judges refer their clients, friends, and family to Thompson O'Neil Law.
Haven't seen us on TV?
You don't have to be a good lawyer to advertise on TV — you only have to pay for advertising. You do, however, need to be good lawyers to be consistently rated among the top law firms in the country, to be regularly invited to speak and teach trial skills to other lawyers, and to be the one firm that consistently represents the friends and family members of judges and other lawyers. Our team of Attorneys at Thompson O'Neil pride ourselves on excellent legal service, not good advertising.
Thompson O'Neil Law Firm General Policies
Contingency Fee Contract
At Thompson O'Neil Law, we offer clients the option of hiring us on a contingent fee basis. In the event that this option is chosen, the attorneys receive no compensation unless they secure a recovery for the client, and the fee is proportionate to the recovery.
- The law firm also offers clients the option of engaging on an hourly or a daily fee basis.
- In appropriate cases, we have also devised a hybrid option of lower hourly fees, with a contingent component in the event of a successful outcome as defined by the agreement. Under ethics rules applicable to all Michigan attorneys, contingent fee clients may be responsible for certain out-of-pocket expenses; that issue should be discussed thoroughly with an attorney retained by the client.
