Another question. I am one (wife also) a victim of IndyMac

Another question. I am one (wife also) a victim of IndyMac (One West) bank fraudulent practices and they are now the last one's holding out on making a final decision on how much the will pay their half million customers.
It is being monitored by the Independent Foreclosure Review. I called them and was told even though they(one West,IndyMac) are being investigated one can take action separately.
Do you feel as though an attorney would do this pro bono because we have a really strong case?

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to assist you.


Many attorneys take pro bono cases because their clients cannot afford an attorney and have very limited means. Some attorneys handle cases on a sliding scale basis which means their fees are adjusted in accordance with their clients ability to pay. Some attorneys will take a case on contingency accepting a percentage of the award from the litigation. Many attorneys will not take a contingency case unless they determine strong possibility of winning. You may also be able to pay a small hourly fee along with a percentage of the award if any.


Depending on your circumstances all of the above are possibilities. Given your description finding an attorney to take the case on a contingency might be your best bet. Suing a large corporation can be costly and time consuming for any attorney. Finding an attorney to take the case pro bono might be difficult.
