(705 ILCS 505/26-1)
(from Ch. 37, par. 439.24-6.1)
Except as otherwise provided herein, the maximum contingent
fee to be charged by an attorney practicing before the Court shall not exceed
20 percent of the amount awarded, which is in excess of the undisputed amount
of the claim, unless further fees shall be allowed by the Court. In cases involving lapsed appropriations or lost warrants
where there is no dispute as to the liability of the respondent, the fee,
if any, for services rendered is to be fixed by the Court at a nominal amount.
Nothing herein applies to awards made under the Line of Duty
Compensation Act or the Illinois National Guardsman's
Compensation Act or the Illinois Uniform Conviction Information Act.
