FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



Q:        What types of employee / employer issues do you assist with?

A:        I assist with issues related to employment, severance, retention, non-compete/non-solicit and equity agreements, bonus & salary disputes, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation, whistle-blowing and Human Resource relations.

Q:        When is the right time to meet with you regarding my employment issue?

A:        While there are no clear guidelines, a proactive approach is always best. Contacting a lawyer to discuss your options prior to any employment decision gives you a better opportunity to shape your own future and to prevent problems before they begin or escalate further.

Q:        How do you work with clients?

A:        In almost all instances, the first step is to have an initial consultation. At that time, I will review your situation and provide guidance as to your options for proceeding on your own, or hiring me to assist you.

Q:        How much do you charge?

A:        Contact me directly to discuss my current consultation, hourly contingency and retainer rates.

Q:        Do I need to come to your office in order for us to work together?

A:        No, you do not need to come to my office.  I represent individuals throughout the United States and internationally. Most, if not all, of the work can be done via a combination of telephone and electronic mail if you are unable to meet in person.

Q:        Do you represent companies?

A:        Yes, I represent small companies (i.e., less than 20-30 employees).  However, I avoid conflicts of interest as the vast majority of my clients work for large companies and I do not represent employees within the same organization.
