This video features Wayne D. Parsons, a Medical Malpractice attorney based in Hawaii.
How much does an attorney cost in Hawaii?
For a personal injury case, which includes medical malpractice and products liability and car crashes and those types of cases, the person who hires a lawyer does not need to pay any money to get the lawyer to represent them. They pay a contingency fee at the end of the case, if the lawyer collects. If the lawyer does not collect any money for them, they don't pay any fee. The lawyer doesn't get paid and they don't get paid. That doesn't happen very often. Some lawyers charge by the hour for certain types of cases, but I don't think that is really a significant part of personal injury work. Typical hourly fees for Hawaii lawyers, it goes somewhere from $200 to probably $700 or $800 per hour. And again, doesn't really apply to personal injury cases, but that's an hourly fee that's typically charged in Hawaii.
