Free Legal Consultation
Many injured workers are hesitant to hire an attorney because they are worried about the cost of representation. At The Shelton Law Firm, clients can benefit from a free legal consultation. And because Attorney Michael E. Shelton works on a contingency basis, if no recovery is made, clients owe nothing.
I'm often asked when people come in, "What's this going to cost me to have you represent me?" Most working people that are injured don't have a big stockpile of cash. They can't afford to pay a lawyer by the hour. So I work on a contingency basis. That is me getting paid is contingent on making a recovery for my client. If I don't make a recovery, I don't receive a fee. The time, the work, the expense that I have put in, I simply lose that, which of course gives me an incentive to get the best result possible for my client. And that includes hiring the best experts that can be found in whatever field is involved, whether it's metallurgy, accident reconstruction, aircraft reconstruction, pipeline accident reconstruction. You have to hire the very best, and you have to prepare as if you're going to trial. Not every case will go to trial, but to get top dollar for my clients, I have to prepare every case as if it is going to trial. But there is no cost to the client if I do not recover money for them.
