You are free to ask if the lawyer will renegotiate the agreement. He is free to say "no".Quoting seavsohana
If you want us to tell you how often attorney fees in your state premise their contingency fees on recovery against gross as opposed to net, if the law permits the former I expect that most will do the former.Quoting seavsohana
You should review the statute linked above to see if it applies to your case and, if so, to what effect.
We know nothing about the case or its complexity but it doesn't much matter because our opinions count for nothing. With a few exceptions for higher risk or high expense cases, I personally think that attorney fees should normally be calculated off of net recovery, but my opinion and $2 will get you a cup of coffee.Quoting seavsohana
