I don’t take every case that comes through the door.
Unfortunately, I get a lot of cases that I’m unable to take for various reasons. One is that there may be nobody to collect against. I do these cases on a contingency fee, which means that I don’t get paid from my clients upfront, I get paid for what I collect for my clients. And for the clients it’s a great thing because people don’t necessarily have the money to hire a lawyer so this doesn’t cost them anything to hire me. But there has to be something at the end as a practical matter to collect from, and so a lot of cases they don’t have that, we’re not able to help them.
