Shannon Freer contacted Joel Olson to represent her in her personal injury case. She asked Joel to take the case on a contingency since most firms take personal injury cases on a contingency basis and she had no funds for a lawyer. Joel is a new sole practitioner, right out of law school, and is struggling to meet the overhead expenses of the office. He told Shannon that he could not afford to take the case on a contingency fee basis. Shannon was very impressed with Joel, however, and asked him to reconsider his decision.
a. What are some possible fee structures that could meet both Joel’s and Shannon’s needs?
