Typically yes it is contingent fee. They'll generally charge 25% to 40% contingency, for pay due at time of the decision on appeal and some amount of pay owed into the future. The percentage and how far into the future such percentage would be collected really depend on the difficulty of the case, and how far into the appeal they have to go...theoretically these could be appealed up to the court of appeals, which would be years of work. There is sometimes, however, the ability for a plaintiff to collect all or part of their fee from the defendant if the lawyer can prove bad faith.
