$35k in lost wages recovered

Background: A client came to us because he was being evicted from his apartment. Upon further investigation and discussion, it turned out that he was a residential superintendent for a building in New York City for over 20 years. He was paid several hundred dollars per week, but provided a free apartment in which to live.


Outcome: While there was nothing we could do about the eviction, we discovered that the client was severely underpaid during his entire tenure at the job. Unfortunately, due to the statute of limitations, we could only go back a certain number of years. However, we were able to recover approximately $35,000 for him for his lost wages.

Result:

$35,000
