How Much Does an Employment Lawyer Cost?

The ultimate cost for an employment lawyer will depend on a variety of different factors, including the type of case, the time involved, the complexity of the case, the experience of the lawyer, and the result obtained. Generally, employment law cases are handled on either an hourly basis, a flat fee, or a contingency fee.

At The Moore Law Firm, we handle an overwhelming majority of employment law cases for plaintiff employees on a contingency fee basis. That means our legal fees are a percentage of any recovery you receive. If you do not recover, then our legal fees are zero.

We understand the importance of your case and the impact that it has on your livelihood. As a result, our contingency fee percentage depends on when the recovery is made for you. The earlier the recovery, the less the percentage. The percentage only increases as the case progresses, and more time and resources are required to be expended in representing your interests.

Employment cases are very expensive to take to court. Litigation expenses – such as filing fees, court reporters, depositions transcripts, and expert witnesses – add up quickly. It is not at all unusual for litigation expenses in an employment case to be in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars.

The good news is that we at The Moore Law Firm understand that individuals who have lost their job are in no position to be forking out thousands of dollars in litigation expenses. We have the resources to advance those necessary litigation costs.
