Should I Pay Upfront Legal Fees When Hiring a Lawyer?

No. Victims of wrongful termination have enough problems. When an unscrupulous employer has wronged you, the last thing you should worry about is the cost of legal representation. Because of this, the compassionate legal professionals at Southern California Employment Law Group PC are paid through contingency fees. This means that our clients only pay for legal representation if we successfully settle or win your case. Unless you receive the money you deserve, you will not pay any attorneys’ fees. Upon taking your case, our attorneys will agree to represent you for a percentage of the recovery from your case. This payment structure ensures that your legal representative is working tirelessly in your best interests. Our legal team will never accept an inadequate settlement in your wrongful termination case.

Can I Be Retaliated Against for Filing a Wage and Hour Lawsuit?

It is illegal for employers to retaliate against workers who file wage and hour lawsuits. Examples of retaliation include:
If you were retaliated against after filing a lawsuit for lost wages, you may be able to file a separate, individual lawsuit against your employer for the retaliation. Contact the lawyers at Southern California Employment Law Group PC today to see if you could have your job reinstated or recover compensation resulting from employer retaliation.
