About Our National Boutique Practice
Katers & Granitz and its predecessor firms have helped people in almost 4o states. We are driven by a desire to fight greed and corruption. While we believe we comply with the legal marketing rules in the state of Wisconsin where our firm is headquartered, we offer this disclosure and disclaimer page for everyone no matter where they are located or where their claims may be brought. Many of these disclaimers are disclosed out of an abundance of caution and not because we are advertising or soliciting clients in a particular state.
Void Where Prohibited by Law
The Internet is unique in that we do not know where this site may be viewed or accessed. We do not intend to solicit clients where prohibited by law or where different legal advertising rules may apply.
Limited Liability Company
Katers & Granitz operates as a Limited Liability Company. Our partner firms may have different operating structures which are disclosed below.
Hiring of a Lawyer
Some jurisdictions require specific disclaimers about the importance of hiring a lawyer. Although we do not solicit clients in states where we are not licensed, out of an abundance of caution we provide the following general disclaimer: The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
Joint and Principal Responsibility Explained
Except on whistleblower matters and some cases against banks, Katers & Granitz generally does not maintain principal responsibility for cases handled by others in our network of trusted partner firms. As required by some jurisdictions, we disclose: While Katers & Granitz maintains joint responsibility, most cases of this type are referred to other attorneys for principal responsibility.
Contingent Fees, Calculation of Fees and Costs
Most services on this site are provided on a contingent fee basis. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client although they are generally advanced by the lawyers. The percentage fee will be computed before or after expenses are deducted from the recovery in accordance with state laws. Please refer to the representation for details on how the services will be provided. If you have questions, make sure you ask the principal attorney or call us.
Contingent legal fees may be capped or limited in certain states. We comply with all local rules where our cases are brought.
Use of Local Counsel
Sometimes we bring an action in a state where we are not licensed. We do that by affiliating with local counsel licensed in the jurisdiction where the action is filed or brought. If the case is brought on a contingent fee basis, the hiring of local counsel will not increase the total amount of legal fees in the case.
