Tips to Choose an Employment Solicitor


Employment related issues like workplace discrimination/ harassment, workplace health and safety, wages and benefits and other such related issues may arise which might call for an association with Employment solicitors.


Go with the expertise of the Lawyer  A lot of lawyers handle multiple projects.  Employment law, however, is a very specialized field where devising a successful strategy for the file requires a comprehensive understanding of the law and a battle-tested background.  Always check for the experience of the lawyers in handling such cases.


Do not be blind fooled by the impressive advertising ď ś Advertising can be impressive and also would be effective in communicating. ď ś Internet based advertising allows lawyers to pay for their ranking on internet search engines, which is not always reflective of the quality of the lawyer or firm or the actual number of visitors to the site. ď ś Hence an in-depth research is required.


Schedule the appointment  Once you have short listed your potential candidates, contact the lawyer’s office and schedule a consultation.  Most firms will charge a fee to meet with a client for the first time.  You should consider: how well they listen to you, whether they understand the problem and the law and whether you remain confident that your legal issue will be solved in a cost effective manner.


Ask for references

You should ask to contact references who can comment on the lawyer’s skills and trustworthiness.


Do not under estimate the costing

ď ś Do not deter yourself from asking the costs involved. ď ś A lawyer would be able to provide you an expected figure that might be incurred. ď ś Ask for any hidden charges and other details.
