If you speak with an attorney who requests money up front, WALK AWAY! Most, if not all, attorneys who represent people who have been injured by someone else will not require any money up front. Duran & McDonald will sign a written, easy to read, agreement with you that outlines our payment plan. We receive a percentage of the recovery at the end of the case. That allows you to be represented without the need for out of pocket expenses and to pursue what you are legally entitled to.
