The amount of time it takes to recover damages in a case may vary, but it largely depends on whether the case goes to try or not. If you settle a claim outside of court, it can be done within three to six months, from start to finish! To help ensure your claim is settled as quickly and cleanly as possible, you need a skilled employment lawyer by your side.
In California, most employment law cases and claims follow these percentages:
*Most cases average $30,000 - $95,000 in a 90-day period*
As a Harvard graduate, Attorney Newman makes sure clients receive the committed legal counsel they deserve—no matter what circumstances they find themselves in. He can determine the best course of legal action. When the claim is meritorious, a contingent fee agreement will be signed and a demand letter sent to the company. They will have a 10 day period to respond. As soon as they respond, Mr. Newman goes to work to settle your case.
"I never imagined suing my former employer, and I was not sure what would happen if I sued them. Mr. Newman assured me that I was entitled to the money, that I was doing the right thing, and that I would receive a substantial settlement within 90 days without filing a lawsuit. He was 100% correct. I strongly recommend his legal services."
"Before I talked to an attorney, I was not sure whether I had a case. Mr. Newman explained to me the reasons why I had a case and I proceeded with him. He was able to get me an excellent result without having to go to trial. As he explained to me, his reputation was more important than the particular facts."
"I was afraid that if I hired an attorney to get me the overtime wages which I was entitled to that I would be fired. Instead, when I hired Alan Newman, I not only received a settlement but also my working condition was improved."
