Top-Tier Counselors for the Underserved
Wittels Law is driven by a strong sense of social responsibility. We are committed to achieving justice for consumers, employees, patients, and small companies; protecting consumers from unscrupulous and underhanded business practices; ensuring that employees are treated with dignity and are properly paid for their hard work; helping courageous individuals blow the whistle on fraud; promoting honesty in the marketplace; remedying civil rights violations; and protecting our environment.
We know that injustice often harms the people who can least afford it. That is why we handle many cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that our compensation is a percentage of the recovered amount, or nothing if a recovery isn’t won. By charging for our work on a contingency basis, we provide each client with equal access to expert legal representation, regardless of his or her financial circumstances.
