No Attorney-Client Relationship
Not Legal Advice
Our law firm has placed the information on the Websites as a service to the general public. Use of the Websites does not in any manner constitute an attorney‐client relationship between our law firm and the user. While the information on the Websites is about legal issues, it is not intended as legal advice or as a substitute for the particularized advice of your own lawyer. Therefore, no person should act or rely on any information in the Websites without seeking the advice of an attorney.
The Websites could include inaccuracies or typographical errors. The materials on the Websites are not guaranteed to be correct, complete, or up‐to‐date. The articles and information on the Websites are provided “as is,” without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non‐infringement.
Any use of the Websites whatsoever will not establish an attorney‐client relationship. Thus, do not use the Websites to submit confidential or time‐sensitive information. Whether you are a new or existing client, we cannot represent you on any new matter until we have made a determination that there is no conflict of interest and that we are willing and able to accept new engagement. Unless and until we have explicitly informed you we are willing and able to accept your new matter, do not send us any information or documents that you consider private or confidential.
No Fee Guarantee
We take our cases on “contingency fee” basis. What this means is that you do not pay us any attorney fees up front. Instead, in most cases, we obtain a percentage of whatever monetary recovery we obtain for you. In some instances, we obtain recoveries that include non-monetary items (e.g., job reinstatement). In those cases, our retainer agreement will set forth what we earn. Further, in a few cases, such as when we are hired solely to review a severance agreement, we may obtain a percentage of the severance. Moreover, in the event that we secure an attorney fee award, we obtain the higher of either our contingency percentage or the attorney fee award.
If we do not recover anything for you, you are not obligated to pay us any attorney fees. However, if you decide to no longer pursue your case or terminate our services prior to the conclusion of your case, we will still be entitled to the value of our services, as agreed upon in our retainer agreement.
In addition to taking our cases on a contingency fee basis, we advance all case costs. Unlike attorney fees, which are fees for the attorney’s time, case costs are out-of-pocket expenses a party incurs in handling a matter, such as court filing costs, reporter costs, etc. Like with attorney fees, if we do not obtain a recovery for you, you are not obligated to reimburse us for our costs. However, in the event that we lose your case at trial, you will be liable for the costs of the defendant(s). Moreover, if you decide to no longer pursue your case or terminate our services prior to the conclusion of your case, we will still be entitled to the costs that we expended on your case. Our retainer agreement will have more detailed information about attorney fees and case costs.
Success Rate/No Guarantee
We consider a case to be a “successful” one if we obtained a recovery in that case. Since the client must ultimately authorize any settlement, when a case settles, the client is generally satisfied with the outcome of the case and, therefore, we consider that case to have been resolved successfully.
Please be advised that the results achieved in any given case depend on a variety of factors—including the specific factual and legal circumstances, the ability of opposing counsel, and, often, unexpected developments beyond the control of any client or lawyer. We cannot guarantee a specific result in any legal matter.
