Contingency fee

You are correct. An attorney can take an equitable distribution case on a contingent fee basis and we have corrected the earlier response. Thanks for your help.

The response from the lawyer that an attorney cannot take a contingency fee in ED may or may not be true. I think an attorney CAN. My first attorney, whom I fired, was indeed going to charge a 10% contingency fee. Looking back, this would have been cheaper than what I ended up paying, but I felt what the first attorney was doing just wasn’t right and just could not trust him. Ended up not trusting the other one either and with good reason. Either way, the attorneys ended up the winners as I probably paid more and received less than anyone ever in NC. It’s a known fact the attorneys charge based on someone’s “ability to pay”. Funny. The attorneys are the ones who think “they” are entitled to “alimony”. And they get it. Lump sum. What’s my question? Why?
