Pro bono attorneys are lawyers who take on lawsuits in anticipation of a monetary settlement to which they would be entitled a percentage.
This practice is fairly common in specific types of court cases like personal injury cases, and in large class action lawsuits, but pro bono lawyers are very selective in the cases they take on, usually looking for VERY large cash settlements.
Pro Bono lawyers will typically require the client to pay for some of the administrative costs in advance, such as the cost to file the lawsuit, take depositions, and obtain needed evidence. In some cases, even these costs would be paid for by the attorney up-front and then deducted later from the anticipated settlement or court ruling.
In addition to the administrative costs, pro bono lawyers typically charge a fee of 25% - 40% or more, usually dependent on whether the case settles out of court or requires actual litigation.
