Zero Money Down, I Don't Get Paid If You Don't Get Paid: How Contingency Fees Work.

It's no money down, and I don't get paid unless you get paid.

What am I talking about? I'm Consumer Financial Protection Attorney Mike Cardoza. I take your debt collection harassment and credit reporting error cases for no money down. That's right. I front all of the fees, and the costs, and the labor, and I don't get paid unless you get paid, which means unless you get some kind of settlement, I just took all that risk. It's really pretty simple. You've got nothing to lose.

I will tell you that I do not take every case. If I don't think your case is a winner, I figure, why waste everybody's time, so you can know that if I take your case, I'm pretty sure that we're going to both do okay.

This is no guarantee. They're all different. Everyone's problem is different.

I know we all know that, but I'm just telling you the way the laws are structured for shifting attorney's fees for plaintiffs, who are you, it works out that I can take your case without you having to pay anything up front.

I hope that kind of helps. Call me if you got any more questions about it, and I'll look forward to seeing you soon.

What Is a Contingency Fee Agreement?

Contingency fee agreements are fairly common (and simple!) agreements for legal representation. Put simply, the fact that I work on a contingency fee basis means that you pay no money down, and I don't get paid unless I win your case and you get compensated. I front all of the fees, costs, and labor, and I only get paid when I resolve your case successfully. At that time, I receive a percentage of the total settlement as my payment.

My Fee Structure Allows Me to Help All Consumers Who Need Representation

It's really pretty simple, you've got nothing to lose. The contingency fee pay structure allows me to offer my services to anyone who may need them, regardless of financial situation. I believe that ALL consumers are entitled to protection, and you should always be able to afford an attorney to fight for your rights.

Not Every Case Is Right for Me

Now, I will tell you that I do not take every case. If I don't think your case is a winner, I figure why waste everybody's time? This is not a guarantee. All cases are different and everyone's problems are different. However, you can know that if I take your case, I'm pretty confident that your case has merit and that you're entitled to compensation.
