Mark Caruso offers a discounted percentage attorney fee of 29% for all cases that the firm can settle without filing a lawsuit. This is unprecedented in Albuquerque, and we were the first Albuquerque Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Attorney to make such a discount. Most every other personal injury attorney still charges the full 33 1/3% attorney fee.
This discount applies to all personal injury and wrongful death cases handled by the firm including accidents and collisions involving auto, truck, semi-truck, 18 wheeler, tractor trailer, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, buses, pedestrians and to all types of injuries including head trauma, brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones, soft tissue injury, psychological injury including PTSD.
**The formula for the discounted fee is simple.
At the conclusion of the pre-litigation settlement only 29% is deducted for attorney fees, not 33 1/3%.
The math is simple, but the additional pocket money for the client can be enormous!
**The rationale behind the discounted fee is simple.
Caruso spends less money on expensive advertising.
Mark Caruso doesn’t spend tens of thousands of dollars per month on television, radio, billboard and bus advertising. Because of the reduced advertising overhead, Caruso can discount the fee and put more money in the client’s pocket. You don’t really benefit from this advertising. In fact, some jury polls indicate that juries don’t like lawyers who advertise on television, radio, billboards and sides of buses. There is some evidence that they will award you less money because of who you have representing you in the courtroom.
Caruso cites the NM Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Responsibility which permit the attorney to charge only a reasonable attorney fee based on the amount and kind of work performed. If the amount of work is less, why shouldn’t the fees to the attorney be less. All attorneys should be following Mark Caruso example of the discounted fee. Some attorneys have no begun copying Caruso’s discounted fees.
**The result of the discounted fee is simple.
A discounted attorney fee means more money in the client’s pocket and less money in the attorney’s pocket at the end of the case.
At the settlement of your case you are happier with our firm because you see more money going into your pocket with the discounted attorney fee.
Caruso continues to handle the property damage settlements and rental car for free.
A discounted fee does not mean discounted services.
