We’re trial lawyers. Our core competency – above everything else – is trying cases to juries. And we specialize in beating giants.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN A FREE CONSULTATION?
All consultations are free. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case, the potential value of your case (e.g. how much your case is worth), and the best way to proceed.
There’s some information that we’ll need when you call, so if possible, please have it handy, including: who did you work for what did you do how long did you work there how much did you earn when were you terminated what was the reason given by your employer for your termination and why do you think the termination was unlawful or wrongful. If you have this information handy, it will allow us to proceed to the heart of your case very quickly and give you good legal advice.
The process for a free consultation with our employment lawyers is pretty simple. First, call our firm. You’ll talk to a clerk for about 5-10 minutes. They’ll get some basic information about you and your case.
About 3 or 4 hours later, you’ll get a call from us. If you’ve got a case that’s a little outside our wheelhouse, then we’ll will call you and give you a referral for an attorney that we think is better suited to handle your case. Our number one goal is to make sure you get the best representation possible for your particular matter – if that’s not us, we’ll tell you immediately and get you to someone else that we trust.
If we think that we can help you, then someone will call you and set an appointment for you to talk to one of our employment lawyers. We’ll call you at time that works for you and discuss your case and give you our honest assessment of its strengths, weaknesses, and value. We’ll then set a time where you can come to our office and meet your employment lawyer personally – at that time, we’ll discuss your case in more detail, sign a contingency fee retainer agreement, and talk about the process of moving forward with your case.
When you come in to meet your employment lawyer, please bring all relevant documents that you want us to look at, including: pay-stubs personnel file (if you have it) employment handbook (if you have it) any letters from your employer, including your termination letter any text messages or emails that you think are important and any other documents that you think might be helpful.
Yes. We’ll learn more about your situation and give you our opinion regarding:
1) whether we think we can prove someone broke the law;
2) the amount of potential damages; and
3) whether those damages will be collectible.
Because we’re contingency fee lawyers, unfortunately, we can only take a very small percentage of cases. We are a trial oriented firm and only take cases that we believe we can win at trial. We’ll give you our honest opinion on your case – no sugar-coating. If you’re taking the time to call us and tell us about your situation, we feel that we owe you our honest opinion – even if it’s something that you may not want to hear.
If we can’t take your case, we’ll give the names and numbers of a couple other employment lawyers that we trust so that you can get a second opinion. Lawyers disagree all the time – just because we see a situation a certain way doesn’t mean that all lawyers will. And – other lawyers may not be as trial focused as we are and therefore may be able to take more cases. We’ll make sure to refer you to people that we trust and who will take good care of you.
