Contingent Fee Agreement - wrongful death
I've been told that the following sentence in the Agreement means that I have no obligation to pay for attorney's fees unless there is a settlement - just want to be sure.
''In consideration for services rendered and to be rendered, I agree to pay to my attorneys a sum equal to 40% of all claims whether by settlement, trial or otherwise.'' Thanks for you assistance.

Re: Contingent Fee Agreement - wrongful death
The best way to make it abundantly clear would be to state: :"If there is no recovery, then the client is not obligated to pay any fees or expenses".
