        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

        We were treated in a respectful, professional and helpful manner while preparing our wills, healthcare proxies and power of attorney. Mr. Friedman took as much time as we needed to answer all of our questions and concerns. His staff was friendly and efficient. We highly recommend him.

        I consulted with Justin Friedman in an effort to obtain reimbursement following damage to my personal property. Justin was diligent, tenacious, professional, and clearly dedicated to assisting me, all of which led to a very positive outcome. I was very impressed with his work and I highly recommend his office.

        Question:

        What does it cost to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit in Buffalo?

        Answer:

        In order to file a wrongful death claim in New York state, people ask how much it’s going to cost them. As a general rule, the answer is nothing. It generally does not cost you anything to file a claim because unlike certain types of legal representation, where you go in to see the lawyer and pay them a retainer, or pay them a certain amount of money, wrongful death claims are not handled that way. They’re handled under what’s called a contingency basis. What that means is if there is a recovery – in other words, if we are successful in getting you a recovery – then we receive a percentage of that recovery. In Buffalo, Rochester, and generally throughout New York state, the general recovery is one-third of whatever is recovered.

        As the surviving family member or the executor, you don’t have to, as a general rule, pay any upfront money for legal fees or out-of-pocket expenses. Those will be covered by us, by our law firm, and then, at the end of the day, the attorneys’ fees will be paid if we are successful in receiving a recovery for you. If there is no recovery, then there is no obligation to pay any attorneys’ fees.
