When you’ve had an accident or been affected by someone else’s negligence, you may have mounting expenses and undue stress. The last thing you need is for a greedy attorney to take what little money you have left. If your first concern when thinking about hiring a personal injury lawyer is the cost, our firm can offer you a breath of fresh air.
How Does My Lawyer Get Paid?
At John Foy & Associates, we are Atlanta personal injury lawyers who work on a contingency basis. We’ll get into the details of this below, but it basically means that there is no risk in working with us. We know that many accident victims are already stressed about paying their medical bills—along with those basic living expenses they had before.
Because of the way our Georgia lawyers get paid, we make it easy for you to start working with us immediately after your accident. You can focus on getting better and let us do the work to get you the financial recovery you need. Here’s how it all works.

How “We Only Get Paid When You Win” Works
The biggest expense of hiring a lawyer is the attorney fee. This is the amount a client pays to their attorney for their services and, ideally, for winning the client money.
Some law firms will request payments upfront or periodically throughout the case, which can leave the client with high out-of-pocket costs. If you’ve just been involved in any type of personal injury accident or are trying to get Social Social Disability insurance, for example, trying to find the funds for these fees upfront can be extremely stressful. Instead
But as personal injury lawyers, at John Foy & Associates, we don’t request this fee until the case has concluded. That means if your case doesn’t end with a settlement payment to you, we don’t get paid. There are a few reasons we function in this way:
- We’re demonstrating a commitment to you in winning the money we know you desperately need for paying your bills and recovering from your accident
- It’s our belief that everyone deserves the chance at fair legal representation, regardless of financial circumstances
- There’s no need to worry about upfront costs that will distract you from getting better and bring on extra worry during your case
- We work to get your claim paid as soon as possible without any stress about paying a lawyer until that time
By only asking for payment when your case is won and done, you don’t have anything to lose. This holds true no matter the type of accident you were injured in. At our firm, you can get help from:
- Car and truck accident lawyers, including rear-end collisions
- Motorcycle accident lawyers
- Pedestrian accident lawyers
- Slip and fall accident lawyers
- Workers compensation lawyers
- Social Security Disability lawyers
- And many more Practice Areas
What is a Contingency Fee?
During our free initial consultation with you, we’ll discuss all the details of your case — and what it’s like to work with us. This includes explaining how a contingency fee works when hiring a lawyer who only gets paid when you win.
The contingency fee is a percentage of your settlement amount. When we win your case and you receive your payment from the liable party’s insurance company, our fee comes from a portion of what you win. Until then, you don’t have to worry about any attorney fees — and we can celebrate your success as a team.
Working with a lawyer who doesn’t work on a contingency basis can get risky and expensive really fast. For one, settlements can sometimes take a long time. And if your lawyer is making unreasonable demands or requesting significant fees along the way, you may not end up with more in a settlement by the time your case is done — even if you win.
Plus, it’s hard to know if a lawyer not on contingency has the same level of commitment to your case, since they are getting paid regardless of you winning money or not.
Get Quality Legal Representation Before Paying
Other Atlanta personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis too, but it’s important to work with an attorney who understands your type of personal injury case and has a track record of success. And they should always offer the initial consultation for free.
During that consultation, don’t be afraid to ask questions about the attorney’s experience with your type of case, ask for references, and get a full breakdown of their work process. At John Foy & Associates, we’ll be happy to assist with any questions you have and walk you through how we can help you, from beginning to end.
