Contingency Fee Lawyer in Birmingham, AL
You pay no fees unless we win
If you’ve never needed a lawyer, the idea of hiring an attorney can feel unbelievably daunting – especially when you start to question how much it’s going to cost you. At Shuttlesworth Law Firm, P.C., we realize you may be reluctant to seek legal help because you don’t think you’ll be able to afford it, which is why we offer clients our services on a contingency fee basis (in most cases). In short, that means you get access to high-quality legal representation without having to worry about paying any upfront fees.
How does a contingency fee agreement work?
A contingency fee agreement is a contract between you and your lawyer that lays out how your attorney will be compensated for his or her services. In a literal sense, a contingency fee simply means your lawyer’s fee is contingent upon the outcome of your case. In other words, your attorney only receives compensation if a financial recovery is made on your behalf and your case is resolved, either through a negotiated settlement or at trial.
Fees vary from law firm to law firm and may follow a sliding scale depending on the circumstances of your case. This type of arrangement usually appeals to clients because the client does not have to worry about paying hourly fees to advance their claim. A contingency fee agreement can also give a client peace of mind because it guarantees the lawyer will work to obtain maximum compensation for the client, as any funds the attorney receives are dependent on the final recovery amount.
How do I know if I have a legal case?
There are a few elements that must be present in order for you to have a viable personal injury claim. In general, you can pursue compensation from another party if:
- You were owed a duty of care.
- You were injured due to the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another party.
- You suffered damages (financial losses) as a direct result of your injury.
If you’re not sure whether you have a case that’s worth pursuing, a convenient way to find out is by contacting a personal injury lawyer. At no cost, an attorney can review the details of your case and explain your legal rights and options so you can decide on how you want to proceed with your claim.

When the case was presented, the facility had no choice but to concede in my brother's favor. Thank you, Mr. Shuttlesworth for all of your help!” – 5-star review from Debra P. on Google
