Why You Should Consult An Attorney For Your Employment Law Case
Many clients come to us after their claims are already in progress. They may have made decisions or taken action without the benefit of consultation with any attorney, which may make their case much more difficult. Often, these actions may actually compromise your claim.
We have 100 years of combined experience handling employment law matters, and we welcome the chance to provide you with skilled representation for your claims. Here is some information about the benefits of hiring an attorney to handle your case at an earlier stage in the process.
Each case has different issues that will need to be examined
Many people do not realize this. Each employment law case, whether it involves discrimination, harassment, wage and hour issues, retaliation and/or wrongful termination, is going to have a specific fact pattern. These facts must be analyzed carefully to really know whether you have claims for compensation and what those claims actually are.
An attorney familiar with employment law litigation will be able to tell you exactly what sort of compensation could be available to you. He or she can explain what the law is and how your case could be positively or negatively impacted by these laws. Never make any decisions or talk to your employer about your case without the advice of an attorney.
Handling your case on your own is risky
Because of the complexities involved with these cases, you may not be able to understand the range of options that are available to you until you speak to a lawyer. Your attorney will be able to help you choose the proper direction for your claim and then prepare your strongest possible case.
At several times throughout the process, your employer may come to you with offers to settle the matter. If you do not have an attorney, you may not clearly understand the terms of these offers, and this could have a serious effect upon your future.
You may end up going to trial
While most claims are resolved prior to trial, there may be no common ground between you and your employer. You may find that every attempt to find an informal resolution goes nowhere. If this is your situation, you may end up having to fight for your claims in the courtroom.
If you have an experienced attorney on your side throughout the process, you can count on that attorney to be prepared for litigation up to and, including trial.
