Disability Claims

You may feel like you can't afford a long term disability lawyer, but you can. You can talk to us for free, there are no upfront costs, and there are no fees unless you win. Everything is results-driven and we only get paid when you get paid. Our fees are calculated as a percentage of the total amounts recovered. The percentage that is applicable to each client’s case is discussed fully before we start and is set out in writing in our standard retainer agreement that meets the Law Society rules.

Our maximum contingency-fee percentage is 30%*

* Applicable to Retainers on or after July 1, 2021.
