Why are our legal services free?

Who actually pays for “free” legal services?

We protect regular people

We get it. Folks assume that hiring a lawyer is expensive. But consumer laws are often written so that the company that violates your rights pays your legal fees. That’s why our services are free for you. You won’t pay a single cent. Here’s how it works:

Two Possibilities: Your legal fees may be paid by the company that harmed you or we’ll split the cash settlement with you.

More than Money: Depending on the nature of your case, you may be entitled to cash and other benefits, like a cleaned-up credit report or a replacement car.

Our Guarantee: We only get paid when we win.

Expert legal representation. Zero upfront cost.

When you hire Lemberg Law to represent you, it won’t cost you a penny unless we win.

Certain federal and state laws – like those protecting consumers from debt harassment, robocalls, and defective cars – are rarely enforced by the government. Instead, the law encourages attorneys to represent consumers by forcing companies that cross the line to pay consumers’ legal fees. In those cases, we are paid by the companies that have violated our clients’ rights. In cases that settle, we receive the portion of the cash settlement agreed to by our clients in advance. In other words, these clients never pay a dime out of pocket unless the case is successful.

For example, if a court finds that a debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the debt collection agency pays our fees. In fact, in an appellate court decision involving one of our clients, the judge wrote, “The FDCPA is a consumer protection statute and was intended to permit, even encourage, attorneys like Lemberg to act as private attorneys general to pursue FDCPA claims.”

The result is that our work enables consumers to assert their rights cheaply, quickly, and easily. We believe that’s how it should be. Consumers shouldn’t have to pay to enforce their rights.
