How Does A Free Consultation Work With an Attorney?

At Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, we understand that people who have been in an accident, or victims of an injury of any type, or are often at a significant financial and physical disadvantage. They also don’t have an idea of what their legal rights are after an injury. We want to give victims a convenient and risk-free way to get relevant information you can use with a free initial consultation in a face-to-face meeting with one of our skilled and experienced personal injury attorneys.

What Can You Expect During A Free Consultation?

After calling our law firm, we’ll want to get started on your case, and we’ll need to have a face-to-face meeting. These consultations are free, and they usually last an hour. During this time, we work to determine if you have a valid claim from a legal standpoint. We want to hear your story, and our law firm has a wide range of expertise in personal injury law. Our attorneys will be able to tell you if you have a case when considering state negligence laws, and statutes of limitations.

We will also counsel you whether you need a lawyer’s help or not, and whether Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards is the best legal representative for you. From vehicle accidents to workplace accidents to those who work offshore and in the maritime industry, for over 60 years we have helped those who have been injured and disabled in communities across Louisiana, and we are confident we can help you. We take injury cases on a contingency fee basis, making our legal representation affordable under any budget.

Our law firm will make your fight our fight, and we never charge any fees unless and until we win for you.

How should you prepare for your free consultation with an attorney?

Bring any and all relevant documents that will help us give you an accurate assessment of your situation. For instance, if you were involved in a car accident, bring any bills and paperwork from the mechanic, medical treatment documents, communications with the insurance company, a copy of the police report and photos you may have. It helps to prepare a list of questions and be ready to ask them. We are here to learn about you, and give you answers. Any communications with an attorney are private, so answer all questions with a lawyer honestly.

We are here to make a legal plan of action and want to understand your case. While discussing your case with one of our lawyers, do not hesitate to ask questions about legal procedures, take notes and ask what your responsibilities may be during the process.

What are contingency fees?

A contingent (or contingency) fee agreement means the client, or plaintiff, only pays the personal injury lawyer a fee if the attorney recovers a financial settlement for the client. The attorneys at Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards are proud to not only offer initial consultations free of charge, but if we don’t win for you, you don’t pay any fees. We believe that the contingency fee arrangement is an important part of how personal injury lawyers help clients. Other types of lawyers charge hourly fees that many personal injury clients could not afford. Those who suffer injuries often need strong representation.

In the contingency fee structure, the client and lawyer agree in advance on a percentage of the settlement that will be paid to the lawyer. If the attorney charges a contingency fee, the percentage of the recovery used to pay legal fees should be spelled out in the fee agreement, and you should go over this in the first meeting.
