Whatever the legal issue that someone is facing, they are often understandably apprehensive about meeting with a lawyer. They may be concerned about the cost, or that they will exacerbate the situation by involving an employment lawyer. Our lawyers have met with thousands of individuals in order to assist them with employment-related issues including a review of their severance package, negotiating an offer of employment, bullying and harassment, discrimination, and constructive dismissal. Whatever the situation, our employment lawyers will meet with you in order to discuss your rights and options.
When we work with an individual, we almost always begin with a formal consultation. Ideally, this is an in-person meeting, though we can arrange meetings by Skype, video conference or telephone as well.
The consultation is a fixed-fee process that involves up to one hour of meeting time, in addition to the time that we spend preparing by reviewing the information and documentation that you provide to us in advance. During the meeting, we will
- 1. review your situation,
- 2. explain the law,
- 3. analyse how the law applies to your situation, and
- 4. discuss your options and potential strategies.
The goal is to ensure that by the end of the consultation with a Rudner MacDonald Employment Lawyer, you will have an understanding of the legal principles involved, your rights and obligations, and the options and strategies available to you. That includes an assessment of the most efficient and cost-effective manner of proceeding to protect your rights.
The people that we have met often comment that they leave not only with the better understanding of the situation, but with the peace of mind that comes from understanding.
When you contact our firm, our staff will ask some preliminary questions in order to understand the nature of the situation. We can then recommend the lawyer or lawyers that can best serve your needs and schedule the consultation. We will also tell you exactly what information and documentation we will need in order to properly understand and assess your case.
The fee can vary depending upon the level of experience of the lawyer that you meet with. Depending upon the complexity of the case, we may be able to offer various options, and the fees will be fully disclosed and mutually agreed upon prior to the meeting. We are confident you will see the value of the advice and information that you receive.
