Pro Bono Program

Typically, our office represents clients on a contingency fee basis.  This means that attorneys fees are paid only if the client’s case results in a favorable outcome, typically in the form of a percentage of the amount recovered on behalf of the client.  Contingency fees may make it easier for people of limited means to pursue their civil rights.

As a part of our commitment to public service, our office provides pro bono legal services to advance workplace rights and fairness throughout California.  Pro bono cases are a way for us to promote access to legal representation, justice and help underserved and underrepresented communities with their legal needs.  Therefore we engage in select cases on a pro bono basis every year.  Typically, our office will represent 1 or 2 clients each year on a pro bono basis. 

If you believe your case qualifies for pro bono consideration please contact our office to discuss your options.  Our office offers free 15-minute consultations.
