About our fees

Attorney Fees

Our Seattle L&I Attorney Fees Are Contingency Based

At Emery | Reddy, PLLC, we put our clients first by working for them on a contingency basis. Rather than sending up-front charges or fees to our clients for our time and efforts, our expert team instead pays its legal fees through your claim itself. Contingency changes slightly based on the type of claim for which our team is representing you.

Employment Matters

For employment matters, our legal team litigates on behalf of wronged workers, gets damages or a settlement, and our attorney fees are one-third of the total settlement amount. This means our clients aren’t on the hook for litigation fees against their employers, even if we aren’t able to win or settle.

L&I—Workers’ Compensation

For L&I — worker’s compensation matters, our expert team represents injured workers and manages claims without charging directly for their work. Because we work on contingency, our attorney fees are 10% of time-loss benefits and one-third of any permanent partial disability (PPD) awards that may be given at the end of a claim.

Contingency works similarly if we represent our client for a third-party claim or consumer law violations. When we win these cases, our attorney fees from those who have wronged our clients, rather than from our clients themselves.

At Emery | Reddy, We Help Workers®. It’s our motto and what drives us every day. By taking our fees on contingency, we can assure our clients that they will be getting the best work from a team with a vision of success. After all, if you don’t win, neither do we. You can remain confident that we take the risks of litigation along with you and are incentivized to do so. We understand that a client who is suing their employer for lost wages or living off a small percentage of their income from L&I time-loss may not be in a position to pay up-front charges, especially when they are unsure about their claim. At Emery | Reddy, our job is to help you obtain the payment and treatment you deserve, not to take it from you. By working on a contingency basis, we make sure that you are the ultimate winner of your case. Call us today!
