No Recovery, No Fee

Hiring an attorney to file a lawsuit is a big decision for most people. When someone is suing because of a cancer like malignant mesothelioma, there can be an added level of stress. There may be many questions in your mind about what to expect and how much it might cost. However, hiring an attorney does not need to be a stressful process. The first thing a client should understand is that they are not undertaking any financial obligation. If we don’t recover for you and your family, you don’t owe us anything.

We can help.

Legal Fees

We Handle Cases on a Contingent Fee Basis

The Galiher Law Firm handles cases on a contingent fee basis. That means that if there is no recovery in your case, you owe us no fee. You are not undertaking any financial obligation in hiring us to pursue your claim or lawsuit against the companies who failed to warn you of the devastating consequences of breathing asbestos.

The lawyers take all the financial risk for the lawsuit. If the lawsuit is not successful—for example, if a later biopsy reveals that the person has a cancer other than mesothelioma—then the client pays absolutely nothing. The law firm pays all the costs for the lawsuit up front, and only charges a fee if the client wins. Just as importantly, the lawyer only seeks reimbursement of his out of pocket expenses if he recovers something for the client. If we are not successful in recovering for you, we will not ask you to reimburse us for these costs out of your own pocket.

Free Evaluation

Initial Consultation with No Obligation

Likewise, there is no cost involved in having us evaluate your case. Just call us and you will speak directly with an experienced lawyer. We will explain to you what is involved in pursuing a case, and we will evaluate your case based on the facts that you share with us.

We are also able to ensure that a lawyer meets with you in person within 24-48 hours after you contact us. Time is very important when it comes to cases such as mesothelioma. We do not delay in immediately taking steps to ensure you and your family receive the most favorable financial recovery possible.
