    How much does PayMeNYC charge for its services?

    All initial consultations are free and confidential. If you decide to hire us, you often pay an initial fee as low as $100. After that, we often charge nothing unless or until we recover money for you.

    How long does it take?

    According to the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, the majority of people making claims get paid within 90 days. For many reasons, including whether we have to a file a lawsuit or not, the length of the process can vary. Some cases settle quickly; others take longer. We always do our absolute best to bring your claim to a resolution with which you are satisfied as quickly as possible.

    Do I really need to hire you?

    You could do it on your own, but studies show claimants have a higher success rate, collect more money, and do so more quickly if they hire a lawyer. J.R. has decades of experience and a very high success rate. J.R. is not intimidated by the system, and he loathes those who don’t pay hard-working people.
