No attorney can win every case. In addition if you are asking about attorneys that handle cases based on if they will then they get paid, all cases are not handled that way. Only certain type of cases are handled that way.

As to your first question, I agree with previous posts. As to your second question, you may be referencing a "contingency fee" agreement.
