Pease leave voicemail if no one is available to answer the line, or send a message using the Claim Form.

Electronic and Credit Card Transations:

Although we provide most consultations free of any fee, and take most cases on a contingent fee basis, occasionally we must charge a fee or client expense must be paid up front.   In those cases, we accept electronic payment for the convenience of our clients.

  • Current clients can now make secure online payments on their client accounts via the "pay now" button using their PayPal account or a major credit card.
  • Certain consultations, involving extensive document review or providing a legal opinion without litigation in mind, may also be prepaid in advance of the appointment.
  • The "Pay Now" button opens a new window on a secure payment page of  A PayPal account is not required to make a payment.   Fill in the amount box with payment amount and click "update" before proceeding with payment method.
  • If you receive an electronic invoice from us with a PayPal payment link, use the payment link on the invoice instead of the Pay Now button on this page.

How We Do It:

Here at The Law Office, we Consult, Negotiate, Litigate, and Collect the Wages You've Earned and Have Coming to You.

In most wage-claim cases we are able to work for you on a deferred, contingent fee basis, meaning that in your time of need you get access to the justice system without having to find cash to pay your lawyer up-front.  Not only that, but if we don't get you paid, we don't get paid either. Penalties and attorney fee awards also mean that all your wages usually go in your pocket, while our fee gets paid by the other side.

Think of The Law Office as your partner in getting you what you've earned and deserve.
