Contingency Fees

Given the right set of facts, the law firm will consider accepting a case on a contingency basis, which means that our client will owe no legal fees unless the lawsuit is successfully tried or settled.  Over the past many years, we have handled a large number of contingency cases, in the areas of will contests, trust disputes, and power of attorney abuse lawsuits.  We also handle estate planning malpractice and probate malpractice cases on a contingency basis.

When the law firm takes a probate lawsuit on a contingency basis, the firm will litigate that case on behalf of our client, with no upfront financial risk or obligation to our client.  For many of our clients, they would prefer that the law firm takes the financial risk of proceeding with the estate litigation.  Other clients simply do not have the funds necessary to litigate their probate or trust dispute.  In many cases, we are pleased to accept such assignments.

We have taken probate litigation lawsuits across the State of Florida on a contingency basis.  Because of our size and concentration in the area of probate litigation and trust litigation, we are able to spread the risk of taking contingency litigation cases across our probate lawsuits. 

We have recently taken a number of cases representing surviving spouses in probate disputes, where the other family members attempt to dispute the surviving spouse's entitlement to surviving spouse rights in the estate.  They contest the surviving spouses right to Florida homestead, elective share, family allowance, and rights as a pretermitted spouse. 

The probate law firm is also one of the few probate law firms in the State of Florida to take guardianship disputes on a contingency basis.  In certain situations, a contingency arrangement in a guardianship lawsuit can make sense.

Please contact The Law Firm, at (561) 842-4868 to discuss handling your will contest, trust dispute, or other type of trust, estate, or guardianship dispute on a contingency basis.  For a lawsuit that we take on a contingency basis, you will owe the law firm nothing unless we are successful in trial or settlement.
