Do civil practice lawyers ever take cases on a contingency basis if the defendant is willing to countersue and retain the lawyer

Pembroke, MA |
Filed under: Lawsuits and disputes

For example, imagine a person is being sued and doesn't have the resources to hire a lawyer. The lawyer thinks the case against the defendant is weak, but sees a strong opportunity in a countersuit against the plaintiff. In situations like these, do lawyers ever make a deal that they will defend the defendant against the claim either free of charge, or fees rolled into the contingency fee of a counterclaim?

  1. You would have to ask the attorney if they are willing to do it. There are many attorneys that will give reduced fees for low income people. Talk to a few in your area and see what they say.
