I got the insurance settlement, finally, less the lawyer's cut and my health insurance company's cut. I think I did just *slightly* worse than if I'd been tolerably competent on CA law on the topic but didn't get a lawyer. So by that metric, the lawyer earned pay from me for basic competence, and then anything beyond that was just whether the insurance company or the lawyer wound up with any particular chunk.

I still came out well ahead on the deal, so it's certainly not like I owe money. Well, except taxes, but you can't really get around that. I should talk to the guy who does my taxes and figure out whether I should send in a chunk now or wait 'til next April, long as I'm talking to him.
