How Do I Hire Your Law Firm?

Home / FAQs / How Do I Hire Your Law Firm?

Being involved in an accident is a traumatic, stressful experience. In the case of serious accidents that leave you injured, you can find yourself overwhelmed with medical expenses, vehicle repair bills, and uncertainty about your ability to work and provide for yourself and your loved ones.

Hiring a personal injury law firm can be one of the best decisions you make. Having a professional partner that understands the legal process and has helped thousands of people through similar situations can relieve uncertainty and provide you with guidance on your legal options and next steps.

Hiring Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm

  1. Contact us by calling 212-268-3222 or fill out the contact form on our website, and ask to speak with one of our lawyers. The consultation is free.
  2. Our legal staff will review your claim and you will be advised regarding your situation and next steps if any.
  3. If it’s determined you might have a case, we will ask you to come to our office and meet with a lawyer in person. The meeting will probably last about 30 minutes. There is no charge for this meeting.
  4. If we decide you have a case and you would like to hire Raphaelson & Levine to represent you, we will ask you to sign a retainer letter that authorizes us to represent you. From that point forward we will begin work on what we call a contingency fee basis.

By “contingency fee” we mean you pay us nothing for our services, or for any expenses associated with the development of your case, unless and until we win a settlement, or judgment, on your behalf, no matter how long it takes to conclude your case. Only then, and only if we win, are we compensated for our services. Our fee is calculated as a percentage of the money you recover.
