The Contingent-Fee Agreement
I read a very interesting and informative article in defense of contingency fees. The article is a law review article, so it's not a light read, but it is very informative.
The author, Elihu Inselbuch, shoots down many of the myths and propaganda that are used to support the elimination of contingent-fee agreements. Contingent-fee agreements are "the key to the courthouse door," and without them, many people would be unable to file suits to protect their rights.
