Hiring an Overtime Pay Lawyer that represents WorkersUnlike many areas of the law where consumers are constantly bombarded with ads from hundreds of firms (e.g. personal injury, criminal, social security disability, etc.), it can be much more difficult to find knowledgeable unpaid overtime lawyers. If you are looking for an overtime attorney that can assist you (on a contingent fee basis) when you believe your employer has deprived you of proper overtime wages, our firm and its national overtime lawyers are here to help.
1. Get the Right Attorney
In most instances, just finding a labor and employment law attorney is not enough. What you really need is an overtime lawyer whose primary focus is wage and hour law. Even on a national scale, the number of employment law firms that concentrate their practice specifically on failure to pay overtime cases is small (they all fit in one meeting room at national employment law conferences). Finding the right firm and overtime attorney can make a significant difference in not only how your case is handled, but in the ultimate result – the number of dollars recovered for your claim.
2. Ask The Attorney or Law Firm Questions
- How long has the law firm been handling overtime cases?
- Has the law firm successfully handled cases similar to my case?
- Does the law firm have a network of local counsel across the country?
- What will be done to evaluate my case to determine if it is likely to be “a winner”?
- Will the firm take my case on a contingent fee basis, with no up front cost to me?
- How will the firm and its unpaid overtime attorneys communicate with me?
