I can't provide you with a specific percentage of the likelihood of success. There are far, far too many variables, and any estimate I were to give you would be completely meaningless. What I can do is provide you with an accurate statement of the law in California and what your rights are under that law. That is what I have tried to do. I hope that you appreciate these limitations and understand that I am trying to be as helpful as I possibly can under the circumstances.
I would advise contacting local attorneys to see if they would be willing to handle this matter on a contingency fee basis. On a contingency fee, they will only be paid if the recover money on your behalf. This means that there is little risk to you in proceeding with a claim, regardless of the likelihood of its success, because you will not be liable for attorney fees if you lose.
I certainly appreciate your predicament and frustration in not being able to receive a more concrete answer. I hope that you will also appreciate the time that I have put into answering your questions and that you will click "accept" so that I can be paid for my time. Thanks so much.
