    “J.R. was instrumental in my lawsuit and recovery against my former employer. He took a complex process and simplified and shortened it, and obtained a favorable settlement for me. J.R. was very confident but also kept my expectations realistic. I cannot recommend him enough!”

    S. Monroe

    “J.R. answered some questions I had regarding my legal issue about a non-paying client and was very patient and detailed in his responses. I decided to retain him and he was able to arrive at a settlement quickly – it was a pleasure working with him and I can recommend his services to anyone looking for trustworthy and competent legal counsel.”

    Helping Freelancers Get Paid

    NYC freelancers are often entitled to double the contract amount if the hiring party refuses to pay, underpays, or pays late.


    For a free consultation, call us or contact us below.

    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.

    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.

    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.
