An attorney should be involved before negotiations begin

In this competitive job market, many candidates undervalue their contributions to the hiring company. They delay bringing an employment attorney on board to negotiate their contracts, because they don’t want to appear ungrateful for the offer. But the fact is that companies expect you to be represented, so it’s much more comfortable to bring in an attorney at the beginning of the process than to wait until talks go awry.

We are also mindful of building a strong foundation for the years you will spend at your new firm, so we represent you with the dignity you expect and deserve.
