Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge for attorney’s fees?

In our employment law and personal injury matters, we work on a contingency fee-based practice which means that our clients pay no attorney’s fees unless and until we recover for them. In our family law cases, we work on an hourly rate, and each case is different. We encourage clients to contact us for a no-obligation free consultation to discuss their case.

What is Wrongful Termination?

In California, a wrongful termination lawsuit is a legal action in which a worker claims he or she was fired or laid off for an illegal reason. This generally means a violation of federal or state law, or public policy. The most common claims are that the firing amounted to wrongful termination in violation (1) of an implied contract; (2) reporting a potential violation of the law; (3) for whistleblower activities; (4) exercising rights under the Fair Employment and Housing Act, such as opposing workplace harassment, discrimination, or failure to grant pregnancy/family lease; (5) for filing a worker’s compensation claim or reporting a work injury; and (6) exercising rights under California employee leave laws.

What is personal injury?

Personal injury is defined as an accident causing bodily injury that is caused by another person’s negligence. Personal injuries may result from a range of accidents. For instance, they may result from motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, dob bit accidents, intentional injury accidents, plane accidents, bus accidents or construction accidents, among other accidents. Medical malpractice and defective product also fall under personal injury category.

I was fired from my job. What do I do next?

If you have recently been fired form your employment, you may be entitled to monetary rewards. Gather any of your employment records that you may have, and call to speak to one of our qualified attorneys with a free no-obligation free consultation. We will inform you during our meeting whether you have a case, and possibly identify the type of recovery you can expect. But the longer you wait to schedule a consultation after your termination will reduce your monetary value that your case has.

I know my child wants to live with me. Can my child inform the court?

It depends. Although it may seem reasonable that a child’s preference in custody and visitation shall be given weight, in family court there are several restrictions. However, if the child is of an age where they can form an intelligent preference, and can express their desires in a meaningful way for the court, there may be an opportunity that the court may consider their requests. A child’s preference communicated to the court can be sticky, and may require the assistance of a private minor’s counsel.

How much child support should I expect to pay, or receive?

Child support is based on a calculated formula using a computer software, called a “Dissomaster.” The Dissomaster is employed by all Courts across California. Child support will vary in each case depending on each spouse (or partner’s) gross monthly income, the timeshare of visitation of each parent, and a few other criteria. Commonly, the Courts will consider the tax filing status of each parent, and deductions such as health insurance premiums, deductible interest expense, real property taxes, and spousal and child support paid from other relationships, as a few examples.

What is my case worth?

At E & L LLP Law, we strive to be honest with our clients about all aspects of their claims. At the outset of any claim, it is nearly impossible to determine the value of one’s employment law and personal injury case given the number of unknown variables. As your case progresses, we will be able to better evaluate the value of your file as certain unknowns become known.

Where do you have office locations?

We have office locations in San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose, Beverly Hills, Long Beach, and San Diego.
