    Hello, I am wondering if fee arrangement in workplace discrimination and harassment cases can be contingency fee. If so how much usually the contingency fee is?

    Pearlette’s Answer

    You will need to contact potential lawyers, discuss your case with them and then get a proposed fee from them. 30% and 40% if trial seem industry standard for contingency fee matters, however, that does not mean that lawyers will take your case on a contingency fee basis. Good luck.
