I am at the point where I believe my only out is to file a major law suit and need to find someone to take this on a % basis.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. While we are not allowed to give direct referrals via this site, I can provide you with resources that should assist you in finding an attorney to consult with. First and foremost is the California State Bar Association's referral service. The information for this service (including details on how it works, where to call, and what to expect) can be found at:http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Public/LawyerReferralServicesLRS.aspxIf you are for some reason unsatisfied with the lawyer referral service through the state bar association, you can also try other services such as that found at Legal Match:http://www.legalmatch.com/Those are two very good starting places in searching for an attorney. Now, a few things to keep in mind when looking for an attorney on a contingency basis (a percentage of settlement or winnings). First, attorneys are more likely to take a case on a contingency basis where either the claim is VERY good, or the potential for income is VERY high. This is because lawsuits cost money (in court costs, in the attorneys time, in paying for things like depositions and even expert witnesses where necessary) and in a contingency case those expenses are coming out of the attorneys pocket. So, be aware of that fact while searching for an attorney.I hope this helps, and let me know if you require any clarification or need further information.
