Attorney’s fees and costs

If you prevail in your sexual harassment lawsuit, the court will award you your attorney’s fees and costs.

If you retain a lawyer to represent you in a sexual harassment lawsuit, you will likely enter into a written fee agreement with him or her. The chances are that the agreement will state that you have retained the attorney to provide you with legal services on a contingency basis. This means that the attorney will work for you without billing you before trial and will pay the costs of the lawsuit on your behalf until your case is settled or won. If the case settles, the attorney will likely take a percentage of the settlement, usually between 20% and 45%.

You should speak to a tax professional about the tax consequences of an award or settlement.
