Questions to Ask an Employment Lawyer

Settling an employment law dispute can be frustrating. However, an experienced attorney can protect your rights and help you navigate through the often confusing process. When you first meet with your lawyer, it is important that he or she gets know you. In addition, you should be prepared to fully explain your case in great detail.

You may also want to bring the following list of questions:

  • What would the lawyer like to see in order to evaluate the case?
  • Are there alternatives to litigation?
  • How long has the attorney practiced employment law?
  • Does the lawyer have extensive litigation experience?
  • Does the lawyer have experience in mediation or arbitration?
  • Has he or she handled cases that are similar to yours? If so, how many?
  • Is the lawyer focused solely on helping employment law clients?
  • Does the attorney typically represent employees or employers? Or both?
  • Does the lawyer foresee any issues with your case right off the bat?
  • At first glance, how does the lawyer recommend handling your situation?
  • Can the lawyer provide you with an estimate as to how long it will take to resolve your case?
  • How does the attorney charge for his or her services?
  • Is the lawyer going to handle your case personally? Will it go to another attorney at the firm? Will multiple lawyers work on your case?

Whether you require help with a discrimination matter, wage and hour dispute or other type of employment law issue, a skilled lawyer can provide you with sound advice and guidance every step of the way.
