“Attorney Hicks treated me like I was part of his family.”
Too many times, people in need of serious legal advice after an accident get routed to a secretary or paralegal without ever talking directly to a lawyer. That must be very frustrating! When you call my cell phone, I will answer. If you get my voice mail I will call you back the same day. I will meet with you personally in my office or in your home, anywhere in the metropolitan Phoenix area for a free consultation. I even travel to Prescott, Casa Grande and Tucson to meet with new clients. There is no substitute for a face-to-face meeting with your injury lawyer, and you should not have to pay a fee until your lawyer gets results!
Once you hire me, I am your injury lawyer from start to finish. Some people get to meet with a lawyer at the beginning but then never see or speak to him or her again for the duration of their case. That sounds like a hit and run to me! If you are my client you can call and speak to me on my cell phone any time. If you hire a lawyer you should get a lawyer, not a secretary. Some matters may be fine to discuss with a legal assistant. But it is important to know that if you need a difficult question answered or if you have a concern that is troubling you, I will be available to you as often as you need until your case is done.
The initial consult is free, but what about the rest of the attorney fees? We only charge if we win or settle your case at the very end. The fee comes as a percentage of whatever the other party or their insurance company pays. Never will any money come out of your pocket to pay me. We handle the expenses of your case, including litigation expenses, and these also do not get reimbursed until you get paid at the end of your case. We never charge more than what a client receives in his or her pocket after paying all medical and other expenses. You will always get paid more than we do, even if we have to cut our fees in half to make the settlement work. This arrangement ensures that we will work as hard as possible to get you the best possible settlement.
