What do contingency plans usually consist of and the disbursements along with it

Hi, I’m am working with a lawyer on a Contingency plan for a wrongful dismissal and discrimination. As of the moment it’s just going to be negotiations. Not a small claims court case. The paper I have to sign states I will have to pay disbursement fees. Do all lawyers have this with Contingency plans and if it’s just sending letters back and fourth will this turn into me getting way less money from paying 30% and now disbursements? Thank you

Disbursement fees are always paid by the client. They included but are not limited to, filing fees, printing costs, etc. A contingency fee retainer is a usual course of practice for many lawyers pending on their area of practice. It means you don't pay until the matter has settled.   

Feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss further. Our practice areas include criminal, human rights laws and landlord and tenant board issues. You can call and text me at 647-360-7182.

Yours truly,
