The pay structure is going to depend on the type of case. For personal injury cases, our lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means that if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. Hale Robinson & Robinson will cover all the upfront costs of initiating your personal injury claim. You must pay an upfront retainer fee if you have a criminal or family law case. The retainer fee will depend on the situation surrounding your case, including the difficulty of the case, the seriousness of the charges, the opposing parties, etc.
