No-Fee Initial Case Evaluation Before Your Consultation
Labor Law Office offers a free initial evaluation of your case, by phone, to help determine whether a consultation is appropriate or whether your matter is something we may be able to help you with. Employment law issues are one of the most common legal issues that arise, usually as the result of a wrongful termination. Unfortunately, despite an employer acting in bad faith or maliciously, typically less than 1 in 10 employees who are terminated may have legal recourse. However, there are many employees who call our office because they have been terminated, and in the initial interview we discover they have claims they weren’t aware of. For example, you may not been paid lawful overtime wages or provided meal and rest breaks.
When a potential client calls our office, our legal assistants and paralegals will carefully take down the information and conduct a phone interview which typically lasts about 15 minutes. Your information is then submitted to our attorneys for review. Your information will be confidential.
Once we initially determine whether you have a matter we can likely help you with, the attorneys will also determine if it is a case that we can likely take on a contingency basis, where we are paid a percentage of the recovery if we win the case. Our priority is not to simply retain clients, but make sure that you understand your options, and that we pursue cases that we will likely win. Not every employment law case will result in a victory. For that reason, we carefully select the cases we will handle on a contingent fee arrangement. If your case is a matter we cannot take on a contingency basis, we can discuss with you potential of taking your matter on an hourly fee basis.
If your case is one that we may be willing to handle on a contingency fee basis, we will contact you and set up a no-cost appointment. Rather than you traveling to our offices, we will typically drive to you.
