Lawyers Get Results — Contingency Fee Makes it Easy

Contingency Fee Makes it Easy — (No Win – No Pay)

No Win – No Pay LOGOEmployment attorneys often take on workplace cases for little or no money up front. They do this becasue very few employees have the financial resources to fund a legal battle against an employer that often has vast resources and deep pockets.

Using a contingency fee arrangement (no win – no pay) – levels the playing field, empowering a lone victimized worker to take on the biggest private-sector or state or federal employer. Labor law attorneys are eventually paid by court-ordered fees and/or a “contingency fee” agreement which is a percentage of any recovery. If there is no recovery, then there are no charges.
