How do I recover files on my MacBook Pro?

Hi everyone, my MacBook Pro (17") powered off all of a sudden some hours ago. When I rebooted it I realized all of my 15 GB folders and files that stored in my MacBook Pro hard drive were lost. I did not have a backup too. These files are very valuable to me. Is there any way to recover data from MacBook Pro? I will appreciate it very much if any of you can tell me how. Best regards.
