Hiring a lawyer in Arizona
Consultations for personal injury representation are normally free of charge -- at least, they are during the first meeting.
After that, lawyers work on contingency, which means that their office will receive a third of whatever the client receives, including office expenses. If the case ends up going to trial, the number might rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment.
These numbers aren't set in stone, so don't be taken aback if your lawyer suggests something different.
