The Military Medical Malpractice Legal Network operates on a contingency fee basis. That means we get paid only if you recover. Should you obtain a recovery as a result of the claim, the law specifically designates how much the attorney can receive. That amount is 20% of the total recovery if a settlement is reached prior to filing a suit in federal court. If a recovery is obtained after suit is filed, attorney fees cannot exceed 25%. The costs incurred in prosecuting the claim will also be deducted from the final recovery. Our firm never requires payment of a “retainer fee”.
