What Will My Case Cost Me?
Litigation is expensive. Our firm has the financial resources to mount a formidable prosecution of your claim. In most cases, we work on a contingency fee arrangement that give our clients the security of knowing that they will not have to come up with attorney's fees on the front end to prosecute their claim. Rather, we will collect our attorneys' fees and any costs we advanced on the client's behalf out of their recovery. In addition, USERRA has a provision where a court can order your employer to pay your attorney's fees and costs if you are successful at trial.
