On the Cona Verdict - Attorneys' Fees Award

For those out there that think that Mark Lanier will only earn a contingency fee from the $135 dollar verdict ... he will seek substantially more.

The NJ statute dealing with consumer fraud allows for an application of attorneys' fees. Each case had a consumer fraud count which was ruled on in favor of the Plaintiff.

You can surely expect that in Lanier's application for fees, he may seek more than $400,000.
