Employment Cases

Employment cases are largely taken because of the potential for an award of attorney's fees.  Numerous federal statutes provide for an award of attorney's fees upon a successful employment discrimination claim.  This is important as many of the cases involve low damages.  However, in many of the cases the award of attorney's fees is not discretionary.  I am aware of at least one (1) cases where $300.00 in damages were recovered but $49,000.00 in attorney's fees.
