LABOR LAWYER FREE CONSULTATION
Any good labor lawyer receives a minimum of 5 new client calls a day in which an employee calls in seeking representation on an employment case. They also receive e-mails. If we think what you say on the phone sounds like a case we will meet with you for free at our office. You can call the initial client meeting a free consultation, but we would like to think of it as a client who has made the decision to sue and is planning to hire our firm to file a lawsuit against their employer.
Beware of any labor lawyer who advertises a, “Free consultation.” If this means they will get on the phone with you for five to ten minutes, is that a consultation? While there may be some exceptions, any experienced lawyer representing employees knows they cannot give you legal advice in five to ten minutes. If you really want to find out what your legal rights are as an employee, you need a half hour to two hours with a lawyer. Will any employment lawyer give you a half hour to two hours just to answer your labor law questions when they don’t think you have a case they can take? Hell no!
