    Before anyone gets too excited, do not forget about Harrington v. Payroll Entertainment Serv., Inc., 160 Cal.App.4th 589 (2008), where the DCA limited plaintiff attorney fee to $500. Plaintiff attorney was seeking $46,000 in fees on a case that settled for $10,500.

    Bottom Line: Small cases usually result in small fees.

    No, the real bottom line: Bad cases usually result in small fees. Good, but small, cases often result in fees commensurate to the work required. We've been awarded $80,000 in fees on an $18,000 case. If the defense forces you to spend the money to get your client's richly deserved small judgment, it's on their dime.
