Practice Areas

Thompson O'Neil Law offers clients the option of hiring us on a contingent fee basis. In the event that 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 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 any attorney retained by the client.
