Hiring a lawyer in North Carolina
The first meeting with a personal injury attorney is normally free of charge. (Note that other legal specialties, such as traffic law or white collar crime law, are different.) After that, lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that they will take a third of the eventual reward, plus whatever office expenses they incur along the way.
If your case goes to trial, that percentage could rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment. These numbers aren't determined by law, so don't be surprised if your lawyer suggests something else.
