Thankfully at Kesluk, Silverstein, Jacob & Morrison, P.C., we basically pride ourselves on the fact that I would say 90 to 95% of our cases are handled on a contingent fee basis, which means that the client calling me who’s, God forbid, lost his job. He doesn’t have the assets to file a lawsuit. He doesn’t have the assets to pay for a deposition. A deposition alone could cost $2,000.
A typical case could have five depositions so what we do at Kesluk, Silverstein, Jacob & Morrison, P.C. is we handle the case on a contingent fee basis, which means we don’t get any money from the employee who’s been wrongfully terminated until we have a successful conclusion to the case.
What’s important to note that what’s a successful conclusion? The successful conclusion is when our client’s happy. The case is always my clients. I can give them a recommendation that I think this is a good offer, I think your employer is being fair to you, but ultimately it’s up to the client to decide whether they want to take the settlement or whether they want to go forward with litigation.
I think that’s what sets us apart. We are a litigation firm. We do try our cases. We’re experienced in both state and federal court, and we’re happy with any venue. We don’t discriminate. If the fight takes us to a federal court, we’re there.
