Attorney Fees and Wage and Hour Cases
A Tampa Federal Judge decided not to award attorney’s fee and costs to a law firm in Tampa that sued another law firm for unpaid overtime pay due to a former employee. The Judge found there were “special circumstances” that can render an award of fees noting that the plaintiff’s lawyer had not sent a “pre-suit demand letter or call the defendant law firm in an attempt to resolve the claim before filing a lawsuit.
At Cavey and Barrett, we attempt to resolve any wage and hour claim before we file any lawsuit. If we can resolve your case before the litigation starts, we think we have done our job for you! While pre-suit notice is not required, we think it is best to resolve any unpaid overtime wage case without litigation, if we can. Judge’s pay attention to trying to do right!
