I think I might need an employment lawyer, what should I do?

Contact us! We’ll hear what you have to say, evaluate your situation, and walk you through your options. If we don't think we can help you, we're happy to try referring you to someone else. 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.

If we think we can help, we’ll let you know. But if you just want to know more about your workplace rights, or need a little guidance about an employment situation, that’s fine too. If we don't think we can help you, we'll try to send you to someone who can.

How much will this cost me?

We take most of our cases on contingency. That means you don't 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 take your case, we’ll discuss our specific fee arrangement with you beforehand and we’ll enter into a legal services agreement spelling everything out.

How will you decide whether to take my case?

Our paralegal will set up an appointment with you to conduct an "intake" by phone. She'll then provide us with an overview of your situation. We’ll review that information and let you know as soon as possible if we’re able to take your case.

How does employment law work?

There's a bunch of state and federal employment laws on the books. Sometimes employers don't follow those laws, intentionally or otherwise. When that happens, one option you have is to contact a law firm like ours! If we think you have a case, we'll see about filing a complaint in court to recover damages and to stop the employer from continuing to engage in the illegal conduct.

What is a "class action"?

A class action is a lawsuit that a person (or a couple of people) file on behalf of a larger group of individuals with similar claims. In other words, someone who pursues a "class action lawsuit" is suing to recover damages for themself and also for a "class" of people who have also been impacted by a potentially illegal practice. (Not to brag, but we're one of New England's leading employee rights class action firms).
