It depends on the type of payment arrangement you choose. For a contingency based agreement, you do not pay any out-of-pocket costs until you receive a settlement/recovery. In that case, the costs and fees will be deducted from your settlement/recovery. If you choose the fixed fee or hourly method of payment, you will receive a monthly bill for these charges. Examples of these costs and fees are photocopies, court fees, postage fees, overnight delivery fees, etc.
