Two of the most difficult decisions facing a person who has been mistreated by their current or former employer are, first, whether they should retain an attorney and, second, which attorney they should retain. Most of us are not blessed with a family members or friends who are attorneys (much less employment attorneys), and we have perhaps not ever been in a situation where we needed an attorney. So even if we feel our rights have been violated, it may be a frightening prospect to venture into the “unknown” of litigation.
These feelings are normal and completely justified. If you have been harassed on the job or wrongfully terminated, you may already be dealing with depression, anxiety, and financial pressure as you and your family face the prospect of having your livelihood taken away from you. You may feel that contacting an attorney will only cause you to feel more overwhelmed and out of control.
That is why finding the right attorney is crucial. More than at any other time, now is when you need someone in your corner, fighting for you, advising you on the road ahead, and turning your fear and pain into a sense of empowerment. The last thing you need is to be treated like a number by someone who can’t relate to you, doesn’t return your calls, and doesn’t include you in the decisionmaking process.
We do things a little different at the Law Offices of Benjamin Davidson. We only select the most meritorious cases. We are looking to build client relationships and do the best by our clients, which requires work on both our parts. We will be fully committed to your case, and we expect the same from you. As much as we would all like to resolve a case quickly, it often takes many months (or longer) to truly provide our clients with the justice that they deserve. And we are in it for the long haul. We will always stay in touch with you, keep you posted on what to expect down the road, and we will never make an important decision without your input.
As contingency attorneys, you will not be responsible for any attorney’s fees until the case is resolved or a judgment is entered, and we will advance most costs on your behalf. We do not charge for any initial consultations or inquiries, and we recognize that most of our clients are not in a position to pay for an attorney from the outset.
At the end of the day, our goal is to make a difference in the lives of each of our clients. Often our clients tell us that they feel for the first time that they have a voice, that they feel more comfortable standing up for themselves when faced with injustice in the workplace, and that through the litigation process they are now much more knowledgeable about their legal rights. When this happens, we feel that we have done our job right. Because although we are more than happy to “hold the umbrella” for each of our clients, at the end of the day we want our clients to be able to protect themselves, as well as the ones they love.
