If contingency fees are available for your case, the lawyer agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the recovery, which is the amount paid if you win the case. The lawyer’s fee comes out of the money awarded to you. If you lose, neither you nor the lawyer will get any money, but you will not be required to pay your attorney for the work done on the case. Availability of contingency fees depends on the type of case and what stage your case is procedurally. Contingency fees may be available in government benefit and administrative proceedings, such as Special Education Due Process hearings and Social Security hearings and appeals.
