Experienced Kingston Lawyers
Basch & Keegan
Basch & Keegan handles only personal injury cases. Our Kingston attorneys have dedicated our 75 years of combined experience to helping injured victims throughout Kingston, Saugerties, Ellenville, New Paltz, Rhinebeck, Catskills and Woodstock.
Our focus on personal injury and medical malpractice has earned us the reputation for exceptional knowledge and skills in these areas of practice. Often, other attorneys refer clients who need experienced and compassionate auto accident lawyers, construction accident attorneys or wrongful death lawyers to us.
Settlements and trial
Every step we take is purposeful and motivated by our goal of achieving the best results in your case. Although most of our cases are resolved though settlement negotiations, we never accept an offer that is less than you deserve. We advise you when trial is in your best interest and we are always prepared to advocate for your rights in court.
Our Kingston attorneys handle all cases on a contingency basis
Basch & Keegan handles all cases on contingency. We do not charge you until we recover compensation. This arrangement allows you the freedom to pursue your rightful damages for your injuries or property loss without concern about incurring debt.
Our fees and billing practices
You have the right to know how your attorney plans to charge you for legal services. Our Kingston attorneys discuss our billing practices with you in detail during our no-obligation, free consultation.
Our attorneys’ fee for most cases is one-third of the compensation recovered, minus disbursements. The New York State Bar Association mandates that lawyers disclose that we are entitled to recover our expenses at the conclusion of your case, even in the unlikely event that we are unsuccessful. However, Basch & Keegan has never collected disbursements in any case in which we did not obtain a verdict or settlement for our client.
Typical disbursements include lawsuit filing fees, court fees, doctors’ fees for sending us copies of your medical records, private investigator costs and stenographer fees. We do not charge our clients for phone calls, postage, mileage, tolls, photocopying or faxes.
