Fee Agreements

Depending upon the type of case, Brais Law Firm structures their fee agreements three different ways:


Nearly all personal injury and most plaintiff product liability cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. This means that if there is a recovery, a percentage is charged on the gross recovery before the deduction of costs. On the other hand, no recovery means no fee to the firm.


Most commercial litigation and defense cases are billed on an hourly basis. This means that the firm will charge the client for the time it takes to complete tasks. Time is recorded in 1/10th of an hour intervals and recorded in a billing system. Costs associated with the file are also tracked in the billing system and forwarded to the client for payment. In the case of recovery, the client keeps the full amount of the judgment.

Hourly & Contingency Blend

The more complex products liability and some subrogation matters are taken on an hourly and contingency blend basis. This fee structure means that the client will pay fees at a reduced hourly rate. All costs are paid by the client. If a settlement or recovery is obtained, a contingency fee is calculated against the gross recovery to determine the amount owned the firm, less the hourly fees previously paid. Only if the contingency fee is more than the hourly fees paid does the firm earn an additional fee. If there is no recovery, no additional fees or costs are owed except those invoiced through the firm’s engagement.

Client Reviews

After my accident I contacted them right away. I was able to see them the same day and was kept in contact throughout the process. Everyone in the office was very accommodating, polite and professional. I highly recommend Brais Law and think very highly of their lead attorneys. They helped me WIN my case, and I am forever grateful. They went above and beyond to assist me. Thank you all so very much. H.S.
The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.
I was looking to refer a client injured on a cruise ship and had the pleasure of speaking to Keith. Keith was extremely helpful and he took time out of his day to provide some guidance. If you're looking for a Admiralty & Maritime /Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida, I would highly recommend Brais Law Firm! T.C.
