Many people view the high cost of attorneys to be an unavoidable roadblock that ultimately stops them from pursuing a legal case altogether. Our team at Ryan, Ryan & Viglione aims to eliminate the stress of hiring expensive attorneys by operating on a contingency fee basis. In this model, we only receive compensation if we win your case. Specifically, we receive one-third of the overall recovery amount. This model helps create a positive experience for our clients and reduces financial stress throughout the process.

Why One-Third?

Avoid out-of-pocket costs and obtain peace of mind when you hire our team at Ryan, Ryan & Viglione. In the contingency fee arrangement that we utilize there is a fixed percentage of the recovery that we accept if the case ends in your favor. Many contingency fee agreements give the lawyer a percentage of between 33 and 40 percent of overall earnings.  In our cases we receive 33 percent of any settlement or award. If the case is lost, neither you nor our lawyer will receive money, but as the client, you will not be required to pay your attorney for the completed casework.


As personal injury lawyers, we make sure to cover case costs and expenses as they arise. After the case has concluded, we will deduct them from the settlement share or court award. However, it’s important to note that it’s rare for a personal injury lawyer to charge a client for costs and expenses as they are due. Some costs and expenses may include:

  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Expert witness fees and filing fees
  • Investigators and experts

What Does The Client Do When It Comes To Expenses?

As our client, you do not pay any retainer or an hourly rate and Ryan, Ryan & Viglione will only get paid if the case is resolved through a verdict or settlement in your favor. As the client, we want you to focus on the facts of your case while avoiding the stress of lawyer fees.
