Need An Employment Lawyer? How Do You Choose?
Choosing the right employment lawyer to help with your work problem can be daunting. Obviously, at Lincs Law Employment Solicitors we would like you to choose us. However, even if you instruct a different solicitor, we hope the guidance in this post helps you make an informed choice.
Work problems are stressful and affect you, your family and every part of your life. At such a difficult time, making a decision as to where to get the right help just adds to the pressure. The wrong decision can be costly, both in money and time. Therefore, I set out the questions you should ask when choosing your employment lawyer:-
• Are you choosing specialist employment lawyers?
Employment law is fast paced and ever changing. You need to make sure you are taking your matter to specialists who are fully up to date and are able to assist with your situation. Gone are the days when solicitors could just do a bit of everything, you need someone who spends their full working week dealing with employment law problems. Lincs Law Employment Solicitors are a specialist employment law practice, we simply don’t do anything else.
• Does the employment law team have the experience to handle your case?
Whether you choose a large or small firm is a matter of personal preference. However, an army of conveyancers will be of little use in assisting with your employment matter. You need to make sure the team you trust with your matter has experience you can draw upon to get the right result. At Lincs Law your matter will be allocated to an employment solicitor or barrister who will be your main adviser. However, as a client you can draw upon the combined 70 years employment law experience of the team.
• Are the advisers in the Employment Law team legal qualified?
It may sound strange, but anyone can call themselves an employment lawyer and start giving advice. However, designations such as solicitor or barrister are protected and so can only be used by qualified and regulated advisers. You need to make sure you understand the level of qualification your adviser has. At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors all our advisers are fully qualified barristers and solicitors and are members of either the Bar Council or Law Society.
• Does your employment lawyer have any client reviews?
The adviser you choose should be able to refer you to client comments or testimonials. At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, we are happy to provide copies of reviews and references from our clients. (We also have an extensive collection of thank you cards.)
• What are the fees likely to be?
Very few employment cases qualify for legal aid and, even then, the assistance offered is minimal. Therefore, if you do need representation it is likely you will need to pay fees at some point. Your solicitor should be open and transparent about their fees. At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, how we work and information about our charges can be found at https://lincslaw.co.uk/fees/employees
• Does your employment lawyer provide any free advice?
Before you spend any money, you should be able to speak to someone about your case to make sure they can help. Choosing an employment lawyer to work with is a very personal decision as you need to have confidence in them and be comfortable discussing your case. At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors we provide a free initial telephone consultation with your chosen solicitor so you can discuss your situation before committing yourself.
