By Walton Law APCMarch 10, 2014March 4th, 2023No Comments

If you believe that an elder has been the victim of any form of elder abuse, including neglect, while in the care of a California nursing home, your first responsibility is to report your suspicions. It is also advisable that you also speak with an experienced California nursing home abuse attorney. At Walton Law, APC, we offer free consultations, where we will discuss your claim with you, answer all of your questions, and prepare preliminary action to take, to determine whether or not filing a lawsuit is in your best interest.

If we decide to pursue a claim on your behalf, rest assured, there is no out of pocket expense to you. We work on what is known as a contingency basis. This means that Walton Law, APC defers fees and payments until we have successfully resolved your case. This contingency basis enables those who would otherwise shy away from pursuing a valid claim (for fear that it will be too expensive to receive justice). There is simply no out of pocket expense, no monthly fee, nor hidden charges to Walton Law, APC clients until we have reached a resolution for you.

Contingency fees and costs are based on a percentage of the verdict or settlement received when all is said and done. That means that if we do not win your case, we do not collect money from you. At Walton Law, APC, we are honored to provide our services to you on a contingency fee, so that you are not priced out of the legal system.
