Cummins Law encourages clients to collaborate with the firm in the design of performance based and success based fee arrangements. In some cases the assignments allow for a contingency fee, where nothing is paid until the client achieves its financial objectives. In other cases, a modified hourly rate is combined with a performance fee measured in levels of success achieved. Success for our clients aligns with our charges.


Cummins Law uses its experience and expertise in designing efficient project performance. The firm does not employ an army of document reviewers, subject matter experts or researchers, choosing instead to out-source those tasks when necessary. Design of project strategy and identification of economic results are a part of our national reputation for delivered value.

Whether by phone, email, fax, postal mail and in-person, we are ready to listen, learn, analyze and advise.
