No. We charge $150 for our new case evaluations. For more in-depth consultations that include strategy planning and document review (ex: a severance or non-compete agreement), we charge $350-$400. This is because we take the time to give you a truly well-rounded evaluation.
It costs $260 to file a lawsuit in the state courts in Dallas County, plus $30 if you’re requesting a jury. It costs $400 to file a lawsuit in federal court. You should also expect to pay $75-$85 per defendant for formal service of the lawsuit. Formal service is required, although in some cases the defendant may agree to waive it.
This varies greatly depending on the type of case, and how strong of a case you have. In general, the maximum that you can recover in an employment case is a combination of: (1) lost wages – i.e., the amount that you would have earned had you not been fired or disciplined, from the date of the loss until the date of trial, minus the benefits and wages you’ve earned during that time period; (2) in rare cases, front pay – i.e., lost wages that you will continue to incur past the date of trial; and (3) in some cases, a jury may award an extra amount (known as “compensatory” and “punitive” damages).
This also varies greatly depending on the type of case. In most cases, you will need to file with the EEOC before you can file a lawsuit. The EEOC keeps your file for up to 6 months (sometimes longer, if we agree – which is rare). After the EEOC releases your file, they will give you a “Notice of Right to Sue,” which allows you to move forward in court.
