I consulted with an attorney on a personal injury matter. His contract (I have not signed yet) says he will receive 33 1/3 percent of any amount recovered in the event of a settlement. It does not specify if this is before or after medical costs are taken out. So for example. Say I were to receive $40.000 and $20.000 goes towards medical payments. Does he get 33 1/3 of $40,000 or 33 1/3 of $20,000? Is pain and suffering + lost wages calculated separately? Thanks
