Lawyers Personally Invested In Your Case
Motivated by Passion. Driven by Results.
Walston Bowlin represents injured businesses and individuals in all forms of litigation and arbitrations. With over 35 years of combined litigation experience and high caliber legal pedigrees, we share a commitment to winning on behalf of our clients. Many lawyers hedge and talk about getting “good results.” At the end of the day, we understand winning is the only thing that matters for our clients.
Although litigation is our profession, we realize being involved in a lawsuit is the last place most of our clients want to be. That’s why we run our practice with a few simple principles in mind.
First, we are personally invested in our cases, and we build lasting personal relationships with our clients. It’s often through these efforts that we are able to develop creative and unconventional resolutions to complex matters. Too many lawyers fail to appreciate client goals early enough in the dispute to stay one step ahead of the opposition. Our belief is that the better we know you, your business, and your objectives, the better service we can provide. Our firm also frequently handles complex business disputes on a contingency fee or other alternate fee arrangement in which the success of our client’s case determines our compensation.
Second, communication is key. Clients must be kept informed and understand what is happening in their case. Many lawyers disappear on their clients for months at a time, leaving them wondering what, if anything, is going on. We return all phone calls, and we check in with you on a regular basis.
Third, your goals are our goals. We never forget that this is your case, not ours. Many firms treat their clients and cases as though they belong to the firm. Don’t get us wrong, we certainly internalize your challenges and aggressively advocate on your behalf, fighting your battles for you. But we do this so you can focus on running your business or recovering from your injuries. We never forget that you are the ultimate decision maker in your case, and we are here to serve you. That is our commitment to you.
Creative Fee Arrangements Are Our Specialty
One of the hallmarks of our firm is a desire to create fee arrangements that make sense for our clients, based on the particular facts and circumstances of each case, regardless of which side of the docket we are on. Most firms only offer a “one-size-fits-all” financial approach, but we realize each client, case, and situation is unique. Although we certainly can and do contract to handle litigation matters on both traditional hourly and contingency fee arrangements, we also offer more creative solutions.
Contingency Fees In Business Litigation
Our firm’s desire and ability to handle complex business litigation matters on a contingency fee arrangement sets us apart from most firms. Since the firm’s inception, we have recognized that many businesses need options to pursue legal . We also handle matters on hybrid fee agreements involving a reduced hourly component and a smaller contingency fee, and we can handle some business matters on a flat fee or monthly retainer arrangement that provides budgeting certainty for our clients. If you or your business has a dispute in which paying hourly rates is currently not feasible, call us to set up a consultation today so that we can explore your options to creatively find a resolution to your problem.
Contingency Fees in Personal Injury Cases
For our personal injury clients, we only receive payment if we successfully recover money on your behalf for your injuries, whether that is through the negotiation a settlement or taking your case to trial. The willingness to take your case to a jury to hold wrongdoers accountable sets our firm apart. If we are not successful in recovering money on your behalf, you do not owe our firm any compensation. This ensures our personal injury clients can focus on getting better without worrying about legal expenses.
