Frequently Asked Questions About Our Firm
How do you decide what cases to take?
As one of the most experienced employment law firms, we have an in-depth understanding of the rights of employees and the laws protecting them. Our extensive experience allows us to determine the merit of your case.
Use the form on our website to send us a brief summary of your legal issue. All emails are confidential and responded to promptly.
Before we accept a case, we will discuss and assess your situation with you on the phone. If it seems that we can be of service, we will schedule a meeting with you to further evaluate your claims and mutually decide whether to proceed.
Do you take cases outside of California and New York?
Yes. Although we practice primarily in California and New York, we evaluate each case that is submitted to us no matter where it originates. We frequently work with co-counsel in other states. We encourage you to submit your matter for review regardless of where you live.
Do I have to pay to talk to one of your lawyers?
No. In nearly every case, a consultation with one of our attorneys is free.
What if I can’t afford to pay upfront to have an attorney represent me?
No problem. We often take cases on a contingency basis, meaning you owe attorneys’ fees only if our firm is able to obtain money (via a settlement or a judgment at trial) on your behalf. These fees are typically calculated as a percentage of the money we recover for you.
Does my case have to be high profile or involve a celebrity?
No. The great majority of cases that we handle are not high profile. Most of our clients are ordinary people victimized by sexual harassment, sexual assault, wrongful termination, retaliation, discrimination (based on race/national origin, disability, gender/sex, age, pregnancy, sexual orientation or religion) or other civil rights violations.
Can I opt to keep my case confidential?
Yes. Many of our cases are handled discreetly and confidentially. Any decision to make the matter public is one that the client makes in consultation with our attorneys.
How can you help me?
Our attorneys are capable litigators and negotiators. AMG can resolve your case through direct negotiations, mediation, or litigation through trial or appeal. In some instances, our firm is able to counsel individuals prior to separation, and assist with the negotiation of exit packages. No matter what path we take, our goal is to get you substantial compensation for the harm you suffered.
