No Fees Unless We Win
At Shook & Stone, the way we handle attorney fees is simple: You will
be charged nothing up front, and we will receive nothing unless your case
is successfully concluded. Working on what is known as a conditional fee
agreement, expenses will be taken off the top of the recovery while attorney
fees will then be taken out of the remaining amount of compensation awarded
in a settlement, verdict, or judgment.
If we don't win, you don't pay. There are different payment procedures for Social Security disability
cases where there are maximum fees set by the government.
Why a conditional fee agreement?
In personal injury cases, insurance companies and other large corporations
or businesses have large amounts of resources and legal teams at their
disposal. In order to level the playing field for our clients, we will
pursue claims into the trial phase and will conduct thorough investigations
and other necessary actions with our own funds. When we know we have the
chance to implement our extensive experience and legal skills to achieve
a successful conclusion and substantial compensation, this plan is the
best way to ensure that you have the strongest case possible and that
you will not be penalized financially in the event that we do not win.
We also understand that personal injury cases pose a great deal of financial
strain on victims and their families. Over the years, we have seen the
unfortunate and often devastating economic consequences injuries can create.
Costly medical bills and procedures - not to mention lost wages or future
earnings from the inability to work - frequently intensify worries at
a time when victims should be focusing on getting well and recovering.
The conditional fee agreement can alleviate any additional burdens on
you and your family while we work vigorously to gain the compensation
We Know How to Win
A point of pride for the legal team at Shook & Stone is that we know
how to consistently get the results our clients expect and deserve. While

court. With more than 85 years of combined experience and more than $500
million in compensation recovered in settlements and verdicts for our
clients since 1997, our record of success proves that we know how to win.

for our history of success and solid reputation. First and foremost, our
main priorities are client satisfaction and personal attention. We always
