PREPARING FOR YOUR CONSULT
To have an efficient and valuable consult, please bring the following with you.
1. Timeline: A written list with dates that you have prepared that tell me the facts of the case.
2. Employment offer letter or employment contract.
3. Employee handbook.
4. Most recent paystub.
5. Termination Notice / Letter (if applicable).
6. Any written feedback, awards, or accolades.
7. Evaluations or any other documents showing your job performance.
8. Name and contact information for your supervisor and any other witnesses.
This list is by no means exhaustive, but it is a good starting point and will help me to evaluate your case. If your appointment if virtual, I will ask you to email me these items.
An Important Reminder About Honesty
In order for me to be able to effectively represent you, you must come to your appointment with the good, the bad, and the ugly of your case. If you only tell me the good, I will not be able to evaluate your case fully. The bad and the ugly will come out down the road, and I need to know it all, up front. I promise to be honest and open with you as well.
Attorney’s fees can fall into several different categories including: an hourly fee basis (requires an up-front retainer fee), flat fee (you pay the a flat fee up-front), partial contingency fee basis (you pay an up-front retainer fee plus a portion of any monetary recovery), or a contingency fee basis (the attorney only gets paid if you receive a monetary settlement). In all cases, the client will be responsible for costs. If after our consult, you are interested in pursuing your claim, I will let you know what the fees will be to represent you.
Time is of the Essence
If you believe you have an employment discrimination or wrongful termination case, you should book a consult with an attorney without delay. Employment law claims expire relatively quickly, and you do not want to miss your opportunity for justice. If you were mistreated (for example, harassed, terminated, retaliated against) more than 150 days ago, do not use this website and instead call our office, or call the EEOC to set up an intake appointment immediately. Many
claims expire within 180 days and some expire sooner.
