Welcome To Lipman Law Firm.
Lipman Law Firm, P.C. is a full-service law firm founded in 1991 and built around the protection of individual rights and liberties. Our primary focus is the representation of Plaintiffs (the injured party). We provide zealous advocacy primarily practicing in: personal injury, workers’ compensation, family law including juvenile matters and, criminal defense. The firm also handles consumer class action lawsuits, transactional matters including contract reviews, business organizations, and personal document preparation such as wills.
Most of our cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. This means the firm's fee is based on a percentage of the client's recovery. If the client does not recover, the firm takes absolutely no fee. In many instances, the firm will advance the costs associated with the claim including court costs. The contingency fee agreement of the firm uses calculates the contingent attorney fee on a net recovery basis. This means you will not be charged out-of-pocket expenses plus a contingency fee on the entire amount. Rather, the costs are paid back before the contingency fee is calculated. This prevents the firm from profiting off the expenses and obtaining a double recovery on the firm's fee.
On consumer fraud cases, there may be a fee shifting statute that applies. Fee shifting statutes require the defendant or its insurance carrier to pay attorney fees towards you case if you prevail. In some cases, a prevailing party fee aware may reduce the amount the client is required to pay under the contingency fee agreement.
