FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. WHY CHOOSE THE LAW OFFICE OF MARVIN S. LANTER?

A. There are many lawyers in Southern California, but most do not go to court. Even fewer have actually tried a case in front of a jury. I have tried in excess of 40 cases, 20 to a jury verdict. I am a highly qualified trial attorney. Further, I am committed to the legal system. I am devoted to helping my clients recover the maximum compensation for their injury.

Q. HOW DOES A CONTINGENCY FEE CONTRACT WORK?

A. My office will work on a contingency basis, where the firm will take its fee as a percentage of their client’s recovery; if no recovery is made, the client does not have to pay anything for the legal services rendered by my office. I understand that most people cannot pay an hourly fee of $300 and up, that most large defense firms charge.

Q. WHAT PERCENTAGE WILL I HAVE TO PAY AS A CONTINGENCY FEE?

A. As compensation, the firm is to receive a fee 33-1/3% of all gross amounts recovered if the claim is settled before the filing of a law suit or demand for arbitration, or 40% thereafter of all amounts received whether, by recovery, settlement, award, verdict or judgment.

Q. HOW MUCH IS MY CASE WORTH?

A. There is no formula for determining the value of a case. In determining the value of a personal injury claim is part science, part art, and a large part persuasive skills.

Each lawsuit has it own set of facts. No two situations are ever exactly the same. Each situation requires a unique analysis. Each person’s injury is different and the effect on that person’s life is unique. I carefully analyze each person’s situation. At the initial stage of the case it is difficult to place a value on your case. I will be able to place a value at the time your medical condition stabilizes and the liability situation become clear.
