One of the most common questions that we get is, “How do you charge for your time?” And that’s a fair question. If I was a consumer, I would want to know that too. We charge based on contingency fee, so we get a percentage of whatever we get for you. Sometimes it’s low, sometimes it’s high. It depends on the amount of the claim; it depends on the complexity of the case; it depends on when you call me. If I’m getting a claim before any claim decision has been made that’s moving along in the ordinary course and someone just needs help presenting their claim, then the contingency fee might be one number. If it comes after a denial and after partial payment has been made, and so we’re fighting about a smaller amount, and that portion is being denied, then it could be a totally different number. But that’s how we get paid, and we only get paid when you get paid.
