FAQ For Employees
I think I might need an employment lawyer, what should I do?
Get in touch with us! We’ll hear what you have to say, evaluate your situation, and walk you through your options. There’s no obligation on your end, and our initial consultations are free.
But I’m not sure if I want to file a lawsuit.
Not a problem. If we think we can help, we’ll let you know. But if you just want to know what your rights are, or want a little guidance about a workplace situation, that’s fine too.
How much will this cost?
We take most of our cases on a contingency basis. That means you do not need to pay us out of pocket or by the hour. Instead, we recover our fees and costs if we recover something for you. If we do take your case, we’ll discuss the specific fee arrangement with you, and we’ll enter into a legal services agreement spelling everything out.
How will you decide whether to take my case?
When you first contact us, you’ll talk with our intake specialist, who will collect all the information relevant to your employment situation. We’ll review that information and will let you know as soon as possible if we’re able to take your case.
How long will my case take?
It’s always hard to say. We’re able to resolve some cases quickly. Others can go on for two or three years (or more). Every case is different – but we’re experienced in every type of employment cases, and we always strive to get the best results as efficiently as possible.
Will my employer find out if I talk to you?
Nope. All our consultations are strictly confidential. We will never tell anyone you have been in touch with us unless you authorize us to.
