How to Find an Employment Lawyer

You’ve run into a legal issue at work. You think you need an attorney, but you’re not sure where to turn. What do you do? A quick search in the Yellow Pages or Google will yield numerous results for employment law firms. Choosing the one that’s best suited for your unique situation can greatly affect the outcome of your case.

Below are tips on how to find the right employment law attorney for you:

  • Look for lawyers who concentrate in employment law: Do you have an uncle, aunt or brother or sister who is an attorney? If so, you may be wondering why you shouldn’t just hire him or her. The reason is that there are many different types of attorneys. You need someone who focuses his or her practice on assisting employment law clients.
  • Find experienced attorneys: One of the most important characteristics to consider when looking for an attorney is experience. Experienced lawyers have handled many different types of cases, they understand the law and they can provide you with reliable guidance and advice.
  • Examine the track records of lawyers: You must look at the track record of any lawyer you consider hiring. If an attorney has decades of experience and a poor track record, he or she is not the right lawyer attorney for you.
  • Choose an attorney who is geographically close to you: Your lawyer should be accessible to you at all times. If you have an employment law issue in Bergen County, New Jersey, you should be looking for an employment law attorney who practices in Bergen County, New Jersey — not a lawyer who helps clients in South Jersey or out of state.
