    You have to look for a young, hungry lawyer. Not easy to find one that knows what he's doing.

    I deal with PI attorneys every day, all day. And the 50% doesn't "jive" up. It's 1/3 pre-trial and 40% at trial. It's NOT 50%.

    In fact, the article quoted by sledge further shows that. The law firm had to defend the 50% fee because it's in VIOLATION of the ethical rules. I guess he didn't even bother to read it.

    I guess you argue so much just for the sake of arguing that you don't even bother to read your own arguments. You claimed nobody charges 50%. I gave you an example of somebody who does. I also gave you the quote from the Harvard paper. Whether the firm is sleazy or not and lost their case is irrelevant. I never argued that PI lawyers aren't sleazeballs. That's CK.

    Here, I'll prove you are wrong YET AGAIN:

    Contingent fee - Wikipedia

    "Most lawyers who utilize this type of fee agreement charge a success fee in the range of 25-50%."

    And another example: Contingency Fees: Read This Before You Hire a Lawyer | Attorney Aaron Hall

    And another example: Ask an Attorney: What is a contingency fee?

    Since you are such a stickler for numbers and anti-hyperbole, even ONE example is enough to put you in your place. 1 != 0.

    You're just wrong. Own up and issue your apology.

    50% is outside the ethical boundaries. Again....I do this EVERY DAY. The bankruptcy judge told the firm the fee was UNETHICAL. What don't you get about that.

    Let me remind you of your original quote. "Then he'll charge you $200/hr on top of that. Unless you want to give him 50% or more of your "win"." You exaggerated to try and make some point.

    Done with this topic.

    Start baseless arguments where you are flat out wrong? Yeah, I'll agree with you on that. I gave you multiple examples of 50% as did others.

    See ya on your next baseless argument.
