Choosing an employment attorney is an important decision. Whether you have an employment discrimination, employment harassment, or whistleblower case, you’ll need the best attorney to fight for you.
Here are 5 tips on how to hire the best employment and labor law attorney for your case:
Do Your Research
In Los Angeles and throughout the state, every practicing attorney should be licensed by the State Bar of California.
On California bar’s website, you can check into the attorney’s background including their bar license number, admission date, and license status. In California, only active licensees may practice. If an attorney had any disciplinary actions charged against them, you’ll be able to see it here.
Friends, family, and co-workers are also a good source of referral. Ask about their experience using an employment lawyer and see if it was positive.
Types of Employment Cases Handled
There are numerous types of employment and labor law cases. Whether it’s age discrimination, racial discrimination, or labor law violations, make sure your attorney has experience working on your type of case.
Our employment attorneys at Mesriani Law Group handle a range of employment and labor law cases including age, race, religion, pregnancy, and sexual harassment. If you think you may have a case, reach out to our office as soon as possible for a free consultation.
Check for Past Case Results
Lawyers can’t guarantee the outcome of a case, but past successes can be a good indicator. For example, would you rather hire an attorney who won multiple million-dollar employment law settlements or an attorney who won one $10,000 settlement?
Getting the maximum compensation for your case is important. But make sure you also select a law firm that will provide top-notch legal services regardless of the value of your claim.
Discuss Fees and Payment Arrangement
Before selecting your lawyer, make sure you understand the fees and payment arrangement. Some lawyers charge hourly fees for certain services while others accept clients on a contingency basis. A contingency fee arrangement means that you only pay if they win your case. The amount is an agreed-upon percentage of the compensation your lawyer recovers.
At Mesriani Law Group, we accept clients on a contingency basis because we’re confident we can win your case.
Schedule a Consultation
Attend a consultation so you can meet directly with the attorney. Be prepared to ask any questions or clarify anything you may need to know. Get a feel for what the attorney is like and see if you can trust this person with your case.
