Unfair funding methods

Filed UnderLegal Costs  

Karl Tonks, president of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, writing in the New law Journal on the proposed reductions to the RTA portal fixed fees:

"Lawyers cannot reasonably be expected to run cases at a loss. But if implemented, the only alternative will be to turn claimants away or take legal fees from a claimant's damages, which flies in the face of the principles of justice."

I must have missed APIL's decade long campaign to make unlawful any funding method other than CFA Lites.
