Pro Bono Vs. Contingency Fee Lawyers
Lawyers and their services are perceived as being out of reach for most of people. As a result, a lot of us are wary of approaching one to take on our personal injury cases. The truth, however, is that these professions tend to have special payment plans in place to help you get the legal assistance you need so you can move on with your life.
Pro Bono Lawyers
The law and our constitution make it an inalienable right for all Americans to be able to seek out legal services. As a result, it has made it mandatory for lawyers to carry out pro bono work for a set number of hours every year. Pro bono is a term borrowed from Latin which means ‘for the public good’. Pro bono lawyers give out free legal assistance to a certain subset of the community that is deemed below or on the poverty line. They tend to work closely with the community, and are happy to do so on a regular basis because this is their passion and what makes them tick. That being said, any lawyer admitted by the bar in their state is required to do at least 20 hours of pro bono work yearly as a way of giving back to society.
Contingency Fee Lawyers
Contingency fee lawyers also work for free, but with a catch: up until they collect your compensation for you. These lawyers handle civil personal injury cases with a few exceptions (such as divorce and adoption-related cases) and cannot offer this service for criminal cases. Contingency fee lawyers use their own money and assorted resources to go after the defendants in your case so they can collect on your behalf. Contingency fee lawyers are comfortable offering this service because they almost always win these cases. This is usually because of experience, as well as being able to accurate judge your chances of getting compensation based off the strength of your case and its evidence.
