Settlements-It’s what you keep that counts

Your case does not end at the settlement of the case.  We at Gilbert Bourke realize that the net monies you receive from the settlement is the most important factor in making sure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.  We worked very hard on your behalf to negotiate and reduce all liens, (that is entities that have a right to be reimbursed from your settlement such as, doctors, insurance companies, Medicare and Medi-Cal) to make sure our clients receive the highest net settlement.

In addition, unlike the standards of many other law firms, we do not add to our client’s costs advanced by billing them for in-office copies fees, postage, long distance telephone, and other such items. We only charge as costs at time of settlement, our actual out of pocket monies we pay to other agencies such as police departments for reports/photos; medical facilities for records and billings; government agencies such as the DMV for records; and court filing fees, process servers fees, deposition fees and other costs of litigation. We even reduce our fees in some cases to make sure our client’s receive a fair net settlement amount.
