How to Find the Best Attorney

There are a variety of methods you should try that will result in you finding a lawyer that best fits the situation you are facing. Try a combination of the methods outlined in this article, and you will be one step closer to working with an attorney who will win your case.

You will want a lawyer you can rely on while you are building your wrongful termination case. It is important to thoroughly vet any lawyer you are interested in working with before committing to hiring them. After all, you only have one chance to sue your former employer. You may want to try multiple methods listed below to ensure you find a quality attorney.

Ask around

Before doing a significant amount of research online, it may be beneficial to check in with your own personal network to see if anyone has worked with a quality lawyer who has won a wrongful termination lawsuit in the past. Perhaps no one you know directly has hired an attorney for a similar situation, but they may know other people who have. Additionally, maybe you or a friend knows a lawyer, and you can consult with them about attorneys in their network who could be a good fit for you. If you try this method, it may be beneficial to do a bit of your own research to confirm that multiple former clients have had a good experience with the lawyer your friend recommended.

Do research on the internet

Another option is to search online for local lawyers. You should ensure you use relevant keywords, including ‘wrongful termination’ and your city. Even when you put in specific keywords, your search will likely yield numerous results and some may not be relevant. Make sure you are searching a lawyer’s website extensively for information such as their credentials, their practice area, their location, and cases they have won. After you have selected a few lawyers that seem to fit your situation, you may want to try searching reviews online. Do not simply rely on testimonials on the lawyer’s website; after all, they would probably not publish a negative review on their own website.

Try another search on a third party website for reviews from former clients. You may want to look for specific information such as how the lawyer communicated with their former client, how long their response time typically was, and how helpful they truly were in winning the former client’s case. This will give you a preliminary view on how a lawyer behaves and works with their clients. If a lawyer’s reviews are overwhelmingly positive, you may want to try meeting them yourself.

Review information on local databases

If the idea of searching the Internet yourself seems like a daunting task, you could also try searching on local databases, like the bar association website. You could also try a website such as Avvo or Super Lawyer. These types of directories and websites allow you to search by practice area and location. They also often have their own section for client reviews. A significant amount of relevant information can be easily found in one place if you choose this method. After you have found a few lawyers through these types of websites, you may want to schedule an initial consultation to see if the lawyer is a good fit for your case.

Schedule free consultations

One beneficial part of conducting research online is that you can see in advance if a lawyer offers free consultations. A number of lawyers likely do free consultations in your area.
An initial consultation provides you with multiple benefits before you commit to hiring a lawyer. First, their response time when you reach out for a consultation may be telling. If you are not hearing back for weeks on end, the lawyer in particular may be too busy to take on your case. You’ll know before even meeting with them, and you can move on to the next potential attorney. 

In an initial meeting, you can also communicate with an attorney firsthand and see how comfortable you are discussing your case with them. You want a lawyer who listens to you and is relatively easy for you to talk to. If a lawyer seems uncommunicative or off in another way, you can easily disengage and try working with a different one.

A consultation also gives you the opportunity to discuss your case in detail and ensure that the attorney you are meeting with is a good fit. This can also give the lawyer the opportunity to see if they have the time to take on your case and determine if they are capable of taking on your case.

FAQ

Finding Wrongful Termination Lawyers With a Free Consultation Near Me – FAQ

  • What actions are classified as wrongful termination?

    You may be wondering if your termination legally qualifies as wrongful termination. Sometimes, it can be difficult to prove wrongful termination. In general, many actions qualify as wrongful termination if they fall under the umbrella of discrimination or breaches of contract.

    An employee cannot be fired for discriminatory reasons, such as their gender, religion, disability status, or ethnicity. They also cannot be fired for being a whistleblower if an employer or company committed some kind of wrongful action, or if they brought up a legal complaint against their employer. Additionally, if a contract states that an employee can only be fired under a specific set of circumstances and they were fired for another reason, the employee may have a basis for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

  • Why Do I Need Wrongful Termination Lawyers With a Free Consultation Near Me?

    You may feel that you will obviously win your case based on your situation. However, wrongful termination lawsuits can be complicated, as employers are typically aware of the illegal reasons they can fire someone. They may point to their “at-will” employment rule and claim they fired you for a completely different reason. For this reason, you may want to work with a lawyer who is well-versed in your local employment laws to prove you were wrongfully terminated.
    Your case also may be more complicated than you realize, especially if you had some kind of contract with your former employer. A lawyer can sift through the documentation on your behalf, so you can focus on dealing with the aftermath of your wrongful termination.

    Additionally, you may not be aware of your state’s statute of limitations for wrongful employment. It varies state to state. Instead of attempting to learn about all of your local laws and building a case on your own, you will likely save a significant amount of time and headache by hiring an experienced attorney.

  • What kind of compensation can I get for wrongful termination?

     Damages vary based on your situation, but typically if your case is won, you will be awarded damages in the form of lost wages, lost benefits, pain and suffering, and/or punitive damages. If you are unemployed, you may be awarded what your wage would have been if your employer had not wrongfully terminated you. If you have a new job and it pays less, you may receive money in the form of the difference between your previous job’s wage and your current job.
    Benefits can be more difficult to calculate, but an experienced lawyer will be able to determine the appropriate amount. Lost benefits can include medical and dental insurance, a 401k, stock options, and other benefits your former employer may have offered you.

    Punitive damages are not always available. Typically, they are reserved for particularly egregious cases of wrongful termination to ensure it does not happen again. You may have to provide additional proof to demonstrate the employer should have to pay you punitive damages.

  • What should I consider before hiring a lawyer?

    During your free consultation, it may be beneficial to consider a variety of factors before committing. Make sure you feel comfortable communicating with the lawyer you are meeting with and ensure that you feel you are being listened to. It may be a good idea to ask specific questions about the types of cases they have experience in, so you can see if they are well-versed in situations that are similar to yours. 

    Ask questions about their fee structure, as many lawyers have different ways of collecting their fee. Some lawyers simply charge by the hour, while others may ask for a lump sum up front. Some attorneys do not ask for any payment until you receive your settlement. Then
    they will take a percentage. Make sure you are comfortable with their fee structure before hiring them.

    You may also want to look around their office and search for subtle cues about their work ethic. For instance, notice if they have sufficient support staff. Is their office running smoothly and seamlessly, or do you notice a lot of chaos around you? How do they treat others? Are they professional or overly curt? Some of these subtle factors can help you make an informed decision about the lawyer you are meeting with in your initial consultation.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
