Choosing an Employment Lawyer
Knowing when to contact an employment lawyer is crucial in ensuring your rights are protected. Watch this video by dedicated Phoenix employment attorney Quacy Smith to learn about what to look for when choosing an employment lawyer.
Question: How do I choose the best employment attorney in Arizona?
Employment law is such a specific, fine line. It’s a narrow pathway of law, particularly with discrimination law. To find someone who can defend you properly, you really need someone who is experienced in those laws. This attorney should be experienced with the government agencies, the EEOC, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, and should be the gatekeepers for these laws. Again, you have to have Notices of Right to Sue before you can go into State or Federal Court and file suits against employers for potential violations of the law. It’s in this particular area of law more than any other of law, that you need someone who is experienced with discrimination law, EEOC law, and those agencies.
One of the things that we pride ourselves on at Smith & Green is substantial experience in those areas, particularly with the EEOC, the Department of Justice for Arizona dealing with the US Department of Justice, and other federal agencies. You will definitely need that experience from someone who understands the sensitivity of the matter. This is your livelihood. This is food on the table for your family. When someone’s employment is impacted, it seems like their world goes upside down. You want someone who is experienced, assertive, and aggressive when need be, but also understands the compassion someone needs when their life has been upset.
