“We created the Beat-The-Fee-Guarantee, because when the amount you pay an attorney is based on the amount you recover, you deserve that proportion to be set as low as it can go. We do our best to beat the opponents who stand between you and justice. We also do our best to beat our competition when it comes to how much you get to keep.”
– Greg Akers
“As an attorney, nothing is more important than my client’s best interest. That is why we practice law with the two-fold goal of getting justice for you, and you paying less. We strive to be the best at what we do, and that means maximizing our client’s benefit.”
– Josh Melder
Akers+Melder proudly offer the Beat-The-Fee Guarantee™ on all cases we take for a Contingent Fee. Contingent Fees are attorney fees determined by the outcome of your case. Click here if you want to learn more about Contingent Fees or Attorney Fees in general.
Our guarantee is simple. When we take your case in exchange for a percentage of the money we help you recover, we want to do it for a lower percentage than any of our competitors. We searched for the lowest advertised Contingent Fee in the United States and we are offering to Beat It! You won’t owe us anything (no fee, no costs, no expenses) unless we help you recover money. If and when you do recover money, our Contingent Fees go as low as 18% of the total recovery with no obligation to reimburse us for any costs or expenses – the lowest advertised Contingent Fee we have found in the entire United States! Granted, we are not able to take every single case we are asked to take, and not every case we do take will qualify for an 18% Contingent Fee. However, if you show us that another attorney has offered to take your case for a Contingent Fee that is a certain percentage and we take your case, we will take it for a percentage that is less than the previous offer you showed us.
What Sets the Beat-The-Fee Guarantee™ Apart?
Some attorneys, including Akers+Melder, advertise that you will not owe them anything (no fee, no costs, no expenses) unless you get money. This sounds like a great deal. If you hire them, but end up losing your case and not getting, you won’t owe them anything. But it may only be a good deal if you lose your case. How much will you have to pay them if and when you win?
Every case is unique. Many attorneys offer free initial consultations in order to learn some of the specific facts and circumstances of a case before they agree to take it. One of the reasons attorneys offer you a free initial consultation is to determine the specific terms of a Contingent Fee Agreement they will require in order to take your case. Some attorneys may not take a case at all, unless it can be easily established that someone else was totally at fault for causing your injuries. Some attorneys may not take a case at all, unless it is shown to them that there is ample insurance coverage, or an at-fault defendant with deep pockets. Other attorneys may take those cases, even with challenging facts and circumstances.
At Akers+Melder, although we represent our clients for a living, we are also professionals serving our personal callings to help real people in tough situations achieve justice. We don’t just take cases that can make the most money for the least amount of work, we take the cases where people need the attention and skill we provide to face and overcome the odds. We aren’t able to determine the specific terms of a Contingent Fee we may require until after we’ve learned some of the specifics of your case. But we can tell you that our Contingent Fees go as low as just 18% of the total recovery with no obligation to reimburse us for any costs or expenses – the lowest advertised Contingent Fee we have found in the entire United States! We can also tell you that if your case has particular facts and circumstances that prevent us from taking it for our lowest fee, and you show us a Contingent Fee Agreement for a certain percentage offered to you by another attorney for the same case; our Beat-The-Fee Guarantee™ means that if we take your case, we will beat the fee by taking it for a percentage that is less than the previous offer you showed us!
