It is surprising how many people call our office to ask us how much our services cost. The answer is nothing unless we win. This answer often times confuses those who ask the question. However, our lawyers believe in the simple concept of making a dollar for the common man, rather than saving a dollar for the rich man. Therefore, here at Miracle Mile Law Group we work on what is called a “contingency fee.”
What is a Contingency Fee?
The California legislature understands that if the average Joe had to pay for a lawyer to fight big corporations, then the same corporations would never be held accountable for their actions. That is why contingency fees are essential. Contingency agreements mean that your lawyer takes on your case without a retainer and he or she will only get paid based on a percentage of your settlement or verdict. If the case does not win at trial or no settlement is reached the attorney does not get anything.
However, it is important to understand that there are costs associated with litigations. For example, filling a lawsuit in California costs about $500. Your attorney will likely put up the costs of litigation out of his or her own pocket. After the case settles, the attorney will be reimbursed for those costs.
Do Lawyers Take On Wrongful Termination Lawsuits On A Contingent Basis?
Most lawyers take on wrongful termination lawsuits on a contingent basis. The reason for this is quite simple. A large majority of employee related claims are filed by employees who are not C-suite executives or other high-level staff. This means that often the most disadvantaged workers are lower level personnel who would never be able to afford the services of a qualified attorney.
The lawyers at Miracle Mile Law Group understand this dilemma. We pride ourselves on fighting for those who do not have a voice. Our lawyers are aggressive, determined, and focused on holding big corporations accountable for despicable behavior. However, it is not just big corporations that are guilty of wrongful behavior. Greedy business owners and careless managers are often the culprits in wrongful termination lawsuits.
Why Does Having A Wrongful Termination Lawyer Help Me With My Case?
A wrongful termination lawyer will help prove that you were either discriminated against, retaliated, or harassed. You need to show that the termination you faced was due to either your age, race, disability, among other things.

An attorney will be able to help you gather all of the documents relevant to your claim. An attorney will also help you identify the facts that are relevant to your lawsuit. Most importantly, an employment attorney will file a lawsuit on your behalf and fight for your rights.
A wrongful termination lawyer may even take your case to trial. Arguing your case in front of a jury is one of the final steps in an employment case and often times it is the most important. Make sure to call an attorney if you are involved in an employment dispute.
