Using an employment lawyer can be costly. Even when employees face discrimination, harassment, retaliation or other mistreatment at work and have a solid case, hiring a workplace lawyer and incurring expenses relating to litigation can be cost-prohibitive. In addition to the money issue, there is also the fear factor. Victims of employment violations may be afraid to speak out. In some cases, you may not know the next step to take.
This is why the law firm of Kingsley and Kingsley Employment Lawyers in Los Angeles offers No Win, No Fee representation and litigation services. This means we offer our clients the assurance that we only get paid if you recover compensation in your employment case.

How Our "No Win, No Fee" Attorneys Can Assist You
When you win your employment case, you either receive a settlement or a jury award. A majority of employment cases tend to be settled outside of court. In such cases, you would get a settlement amount. If your case goes to trial and you win, the jury awards you compensation. The percentage our workplace lawyers get paid will depend on the contingency fee that we mutually agree on prior to accepting your case.
The monetary compensation you receive in your case is crucial. It is important that you receive a fair settlement amount or jury award. In other words, the amount you receive compensation must make you whole and be enough to cover the financial losses you suffered. In each case, our lawyers assess the potential monetary award to see if it would cover the cost of our services. We also account for other factors such as loss of income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, etc. We then present evidence to support these claims, which is necessary for you to get compensated.
As mentioned earlier, reaching an out-of-court settlement is one of the most common outcomes in a Los Angeles employment case. When you settle out of court, the advantage is that you can avoid spending more money on expensive legal fees. While this could decrease the amount of money you receive, it also reduces the risk of losing your case. This is why, in most cases, negotiating a settlement may be the best outcome for all concerned parties.
What Are The Advantages Of Hiring "No Win, No Fee" Lawyers?
One of the biggest advantages of hiring a "No Win, No Fee" lawyer is that it could apply to every employment case in California.

What Do Employment Lawyers Do?
Employment lawyers are attorneys who handle cases that specifically involve employment law issues. Employment lawyers help ensure that workers are treated in a fair and equitable manner under the law. In addition, an employment lawyer can provide valuable advise to employees regarding their rights and information about whether any of their rights have been violated. An employment lawyer can help you with wage and hour issues. For example, if your employer is not paying you the correct minimum wage or if you are being asked to work off the clock without being compensated for it, you deserve to receive the wages you rightfully deserve.
An employment lawyer can help you fight for your rights and assist you with the process of recovering those unpaid wages. Employment lawyers also represent workers who are being discriminated or harassed based on their race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, age or other characteristics protected under the law. They represent the rights of workers who have been wrongfully and illegally terminated from their jobs by employers.
How Much Does An Employment Lawyer Cost?
The amount of money it may cost to retain the services of an employment lawyer could vary widely depending on the following factors:
- The experience and skills the employment lawyer possesses
- The area of employment law your case involves
- The length of time your case might take to resolve
- The location of the attorney or law firm
- The facts and circumstances of your particular case
- The complexity of your case and the facts surrounding it
