No. We are a nonprofit advocacy organization.
However, the lawyers who represent Gender Justice clients can be awarded contingent fees or statutory fees under statutes like Title VII or Title IX, just like lawyers in for-profit law firms. The difference lies in where the fees go, after they are earned. In a for-profit firm, the fees can be paid to the lawyers themselves. In a Gender Justice case, any fees earned are paid to the organization to support its ongoing work, whether in other cases or in non-litigation projects. (Advocates and other staff of Gender Justice are paid set salaries. They do not have a private financial interest in the legal fees generated by their work.)
