Why Hire an Employment Lawyer?

Retain Outstanding Legal Representation in St. Louis

If you are involved in a dispute with your current or former employer, or if you need advice about an employment-related matter, do not hesitate to contact an employment lawyer. It is likely that the employer with whom you plan to take legal action against has more resources and experience with the matter than you do. As a larger institution, they may have more money to handle the case than you do, and they might have retained, or will retain, legal counsel before you do. In these kinds of situations, the deck is already stacked against you. This is why it is doubly important to seek experienced legal assistance who will prioritize your case.

Here are some reasons you might choose to work with Riggan Law Firm, LLC to protect your employment rights and level the playing field in your case:

  • Over 30 years of combined experience
  • Avvo rated 9.5
  • Client service-oriented
  • Attentive communication with every client
  • 2023 Lawyer of the Year for labor and employment litigation in the St. Louis market by Best Lawyers in America

Depending on your situation, you may need an employment lawyer while you are still employed and before the dispute reaches its peak, such as in a continuous case of discrimination in the workplace. On the other hand, you may have already lost your job and need an employment lawyer to help you pursue a claim about your termination. In any event, a good employment lawyer can help you analyze your employment-related issue framed around specific legal policies and suggest your next prudent course of action to resolve your dispute or help you avoid a dispute altogether. No matter the circumstances, it is advisable that you contact an attorney at Riggan Law Firm, LLC as soon as possible to discuss your case.

The Process of Hiring an Employment Lawyer

Hiring a lawyer for any purpose can be a challenging process, from knowing where to look to what to look for in a lawyer. When hiring an employment lawyer, you should pay particular attention to the lawyer's knowledge of employment law, skill level, experience, and fee structure. Be especially wary of lawyers who do not focus on employment law, as employment law is constantly changing and loaded with loopholes and traps that general practice lawyers might not be as alert to. You should seek legal representation from someone who is intimately familiar with the issue at hand by virtue of their prior experience as an employment lawyer.
