What Should I Consider Before Hiring an Employment Attorney?

California allows any licensed attorney to handle employment law claims. However, you should be picky when selecting an employment attorney. First, ask how much experience does the attorney have in handling your type of case. Attorneys who specialize in handling employment law or wage and hour cases can rely on their familiarity with the system to help get you favorable results.

Also, ask the attorney about his or her track record.  A list of successful cases is a good sign that the attorney is competent at handling your type of case.

Make sure that you understand how an attorney’s fees structure works, some attorneys will bill you by the hour, some will require a flat fee, and others work based on contingency fees, meaning that they will only take a designated amount from a settlement or judgment in your favor. Finally, check to see whether the attorney is in good standing with the California State Bar.
