At SW Employment Law , we are committed to being honest and fair with our clients. If we are unable to take on your case, we will be direct or may refer you to another attorney who can help.
We understand that most employees who are victims of wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, or wage and hour issues may be unable to pay an upfront or hourly rate for an attornies help as they may be out of a job or may not have the funds. It is for this reason that we take our cases on a contingency basis.
This means that you do not pay anything upfront and we front all the fees and costs. Additionally, we do not get paid unless we win the case for you. You don’t pay anything out of pocket, and we take a percentage out of the settlement or court award against the employer. If we do not win, you will not owe anything. We are driven to work hard to give you the compensation you deserve, and we are ready to take on all the risks possible.
Along with attorney time, there are costs associated with litigation, including filing fees, process serving fees, deposition costs, court reporter costs, mediation or arbitration fees, and other court-related costs. Rather than overwhelming you with the costs upfront, in most cases we advance the costs and reimburse ourselves for what we advanced after winning your case. Once more, if we do not win your case, you will owe nothing.
