Dingeman, Dancer & Christopherson, PLC provides initial consultations free of charge on most matters. If you are unsure whether you need legal representation or advice, please call us at (231) 929-0500 or contact us through this website. You will be directed to an attorney who is suited to answer your questions and who will determine with you whether an in-person consultation is advised. The attorney will also ask for certain information that we will need before any meeting or representation, to ensure that we do not have any conflicts of interest with other past or current clients.
Our firm can provide “contingency fee” representation on personal injury matters, which means that the only out-of-pocket payments made by the client are for costs and expenses, such as court filing fees. We do not collect a legal fee unless the client receives a settlement or other award.
In all other matters, representation fees are based on the time spent on your case. Because the billing rates are different for each of the firm’s attorneys, we will discuss those rates with you during any consultation, before you sign a representation agreement. If you have any other questions about a consultation or the terms or our representation, we will be happy to answer them.
