Rates and Fees

SHAPIRO & ASSOCIATES understands that the financial aspects of legal representation can be confusing and daunting. The subject is even more complicated in federal worker compensation cases as the Department of Labor has unrealistic rules and requirements regarding legal fees designed to discourage claimants from obtaining qualified representation. SHAPIRO & ASSOCIATES has successfully worked within the framework of these rules and will continue to do so without ever refusing to represent any client on a meritorious claim regardless of the client’s financial circumstances. Initially, and most importantly, SHAPIRO & ASSOCIATES never charges a retainer or any “up front” money. This shows that SHAPIRO & ASSOCIATES has confidence in the validity of the case and its ability to obtain a successful outcome by going forward with no retainer. There are a number of advantages to this type of fee arrangement, the most obvious of which is peace of mind and security to the client. The fee arrangement is also structured to eliminate any worry the client may have about incurring the day to day expenses involved in researching and preparing an injury case. SHAPIRO & ASSOCIATES is well aware that an honest, fair and reasonable fee agreement is essential to a productive and successful attorney-client relationship and all fee arrangements are structured with this in mind.
