Legal Question in Civil Litigation in New York


Can a false allegation/filing/, false arrest, malicious prosecution case be done on a partial contingency basis, where a client would pay a substantial amount for the retainer and then the remaining balance that the client was resonsible for , would come out of the lawsuit winnings at the end of the lawsuit, at that time. Is this possible, meaning legally ok to do this, if both the client and attorney agree? Thank you

It is ok. However, most attorney's would enter into such an agreement if their was a party with deep pockets worth suing (like a police force)
