Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. (MWL) believes that the ultimate responsibility of a full-service insurance firm is to provide a quality work product at a reasonable and fair price. We continue to offer competitive and creative contingent fee and hourly rates for subrogation and defense matters.


SUBROGATION: We represent our subrogation clients on a number of different fee agreements. Many clients prefer our “no fee unless we win” contingency fee agreements, while others prefer an hourly fee or hybrid of the two. In truth, we have many clients that ask us to investigate their files for subrogation potential on an hourly basis and then convert it to a contingency fee once suit is filed with credit for hourly fees. Whatever fee arrangement you select, you can be assured that you will receive the same aggressive and quality representation you expect from MWL.

DEFENSE AND COVERAGE WORK: We handle nationwide defense and coverage matters on a competitive rate to assist our clients in holding down the cost of defending liability claims and coverage issues. We strive to maintain clarity and integrity in our time and billing, providing you with a detailed breakdown and description of all action taken on your behalf.

BLENDED FEES / FEE BUDGETS: As part of our continuing effort to offer predictable fee structures to our clients and facilitate the referral and handling of subrogation matters, we recognize that all matters referred to us are not the same and we welcome the opportunity of discussing blended, tiered, and/or budgeted fees for particular matters entrusted to us on a case-by-case basis. We will also entertain fee cap targets, whereby we strive not to exceed a predetermined fee level unless and until you have given us permission to do so. We believe that many fee agreements should be determined on a case-by-case basis based on the facts and circumstances of each matter entrusted to us.
