If you are an AT&T subscriber, then you can sign up, and the law firm will do 90%+ of the work AND NEVER CHARGE YOU. From their "Our Retainer" headline " We ("Bursor & Fisher, P.A.") will agree to represent you on a fully contingent basis. Regardless of the result, we will never ask you to directly pay any of the costs of the case. We agree to advance all costs and expenses. We will seek reimbursement of these expenses from AT&T.
We will never ask you to directly pay any fee. If we are successful in obtaining a recovery, we will retain from the proceeds of any award or settlement (1) any costs or expenses that we have advanced and (2) a contingent fee of the lesser of 50% of the total award or settlement (calculated before the deduction of any costs or expenses we have advanced), or the maximum contingent fee allowed by law. If you are entitled to the recovery of attorneys fees from an adverse party, we shall have the option of receiving either (a) the percentage of the lump sum including segregated amounts for attorneys' fees as set out above, or (b) the total amount of the segregated award of attorneys' fees, plus any interest or premium allocable to that award, whichever is larger.

Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq
This executive order is worded in such a way that even causing a threat can mean that your property is seized without due process. You could be on the street with nothing but the clothes on your back. Be very very afraid of any protest concerning Iraq."
