In most cases, our fees are based upon contingency agreements. We cover all ordinary expenses of proceeding with your file. At the end, we get paid when you receive your settlement or judgment.
Our Maximum Contingency Fee is as follows:
All matters (except CPP appeals) - 25%
CPP appeals - 30%
Rather than paying an hourly rate for our services, Dietrich Law allows our clients to pay us a percentage of the settlement that they receive after their case is settled. This is called a Contingency Fee, and a client's contract with our firm is called a Contingency Fee Agreement.
From July 1, 2021, the Law Society of Ontario required all law firms offering contingency fees to use a standard form agreement.
