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 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 Los Angeles employment law firm of Kingsley & Kingsley 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 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. This means you can claim compensation for the losses you suffer as a result of wrongful termination, wage theft or any other type of employment or labor law violation. You can also rest assured that the lawyers who offer this type of a guarantee will be honest with you and work diligently to secure the best possible outcome for you.

Employment Law Violations
There are a number of California employment and labor laws that are commonly violated by employers. Here are some of the most common examples of employment cases we handle in Los Angeles:
- Employees or co-workers harassing an employee because of protected characteristics such as race, gender, age, gender or sexual orientation.
- Employers who retaliate against their employees because they blew the whistle on illicit activity at the workplace or unsafe conditions at job sites.
- Employees not getting paid due wages such as the correct minimum wage, overtime pay, breaks, sick leave, final paychecks, etc.
- Mistreatment or discrimination of employees based on race, age, gender, disabilities, pregnancy, religion, national origin, etc.
- Employees being wrongfully terminated from their jobs.
- Employees quitting because they are unable to tolerate a hostile work environment.
Retaining the services of an employment lawyer with a track record of success can give you a much-needed edge in your case.
