Many employees in
California often ask, "What does it mean when to be a no win no fee employment law firm?"
The answer can get distorted, but in its simplest form, here is what it means to be a no win no fee
employment attorney in California.
There are two major financial
considerations in labor lawsuits: Attorney Fees and litigation expenses. At Blumenthal, Nordrehaug
& Bhowmik, our employment law lawyers represent workers on a contingency basis. This means that
if if we do not obtain money for employees, the employees do not owe our attorneys a single dollar
for the time and effort we put into the employment lawsuit.
When we win money
for employees, we usually charge 25% in class action overtime lawsuits, whereas other employment
lawyers in California charge between one-third and fifty percent contingency fee. Fees are
ultimately awarded by the courts in class action lawsuits anyways.
Our employment law firm fronts all costs to litigate
labor lawsuits to make sure that our clients have qualified experts, depositions and whatever other
resources that they need to even out the playing field against big companies with tons of money, a
mob of attorneys and unlimited resources. In overtime class action lawsuits, our attorneys pursuant
to the California rules of professional conduct, make the repayment of those costs contingent on the
outcome of the lawsuit. If we do not win employees money, we bear the loss of the costs to litigate
the case and we don't charge employees any attorneys'
