Action breeds inspiration.

What we charge

You know you’ve been bullied. You know you’ve been subjected to discrimination and harassment. You may have even been subjected to wrongful termination. But, what do you do if you can’t afford to pursue your rights against your boss’s illegal behavior? We can help!

We don’t get paid unless you do! Fight injustice on our dime.

Generally, we take cases on a contingency basis. That means our fees are “contingent” upon you receiving either a settlement or a judgment at trial, arbitration, or an administrative proceeding. We charge you a percentage of the settlement or award. We do not charge any up-front fees.

  We firmly believe you will receive a recovery. If you didn't, we would be providing our services for free!  

If we take your case, it is because we believe we can obtain a resolution for you. Of course, we can never guarantee recovery, as there are a variety of circumstances that could happen to make recovery impossible. However, please be assured that if we take your case, we feel so strongly about your case that we firmly believe you will receive a recovery in the matter. Otherwise, we would be providing our services for free!

We front the costs of your workplace rights case.

We also generally advance the reasonable out-of-pocket costs of your case. We understand you have financial struggles as a result of the unlawful discrimination, retaliation or termination you experienced.

  We pay out-of-pocket costs up front on your behalf.  

Out-of-pocket costs are different than “fees.” They are expenses that are necessary to advance your case, such as payment for court reporters, filing fees, etc. We pay those costs up front and ultimately take them out of any recovery.

We are your partner in your case against your unfair employer.

If you and I decide that we are a good fit for each other, we will enter into a retainer agreement which sets forth the terms and scope of our representation. This agreement will clearly spell out the percentage fee that we will take if your case should settle or reach a favorable verdict as well as our policy regarding costs advanced. We will also thoroughly discuss the agreement before you sign.

  We want you to be as informed as possible about your rights and responsibilities, as well as ours.  

Let’s face it, nobody likes to hire a lawyer. Not only are you worried about the circumstances that brought you to us, but you also worry that you are going to be taken advantage of again by an unscrupulous lawyer. We've helped many people, so we understand how that must feel. We want you to be as informed as possible about your rights and responsibilities as well as ours. We are on your side. We have your best interests at heart. We want to do what is fair for both of us.

We can help you fight for justice.

Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation can make you feel hopeless. Employers should not get away with it! By standing up for your rights, you are standing up for yourself. You are also standing up for everyone who has ever suffered the injustice of discrimination and harassment.
