Free Case Evaluations & No Recovery / No Attorney Fee Basis
everyone deserves justice
This law firm handles almost all cases on a contingency fee basis. This means, you pay nothing unless you win. The attorney fees and case expenses will be subtracted from the final amount recovered after the verdict at trial or an otherwise favorable resolution of your case. This system allows you to hire attorneys without having to pay any of the upfront cost of litigating your case.
When you need attorneys like ours, it can often be a difficult time in life. Most people cannot pay attorneys to prosecute their case after having been wrongfully terminated or injured by the negligence of others. That is why this law firm's fees and case expenses are covered during the litigation (such as the fees charged by court reporters and expert witnesses) until the final resolution of your case. The percentage of the contingency fee may vary based on the facts of the case.
We at The Burkhalter Law Firm are proud to represent only the people, such as employees including current and former employees, injured persons and their family members, and whistleblowers, and not employers, corporations, or insurance companies.
