The Pro Bono Program at Melmed Law Group P.C.

Our office typically represents clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that attorneys fees are paid only if the client’s case results in a favorable outcome, usually in the form of a percentage of the amount recovered on behalf of the client. Contingency fees may make it easier for people of limited means to pursue their civil rights.

We Are Committed to Service

As a part of our commitment to public service, our office provides pro bono legal services to advance workplace rights and fairness throughout California. Pro bono cases are a way for us to promote access to legal representation, justice, and help underserved and underrepresented communities with their legal needs. Therefore we engage in select cases on a pro bono basis every year. Typically, our office will represent one or two clients each year on a pro bono basis.

Our pro bono initiative is deeply rooted in our firm’s mission to bring justice to all, regardless of their financial situation. We believe in fighting for workers’ rights, ensuring fair employment practices, and advocating for those whose voices are too often unheard in our legal system.

Common Types of Pro Bono Cases We Take

Under our pro bono program, we provide assistance in key areas of labor and employment law, including:

We view our pro bono work as an investment in our community, not a charitable side project. The attorneys who work on pro bono cases are the same skilled and experienced professionals who handle our contingency-based cases, ensuring the highest level of commitment and quality service.
