The most important thing about finding an employment lawyer is to find a lawyer who really has experience with employment law. It’s a very specialized area, and not every general practitioner knows how to handle an employment law question.
If you have a referral from a family member or a friend who has used an employment lawyer and been happy with that lawyer, that’s a great way to start your search for a lawyer. If you don’t have a referral, another good way is to go on the Internet and search for an employment lawyer in your area.
You should look for a lawyer who has experience with your particular issue, whether it’s race discrimination, sexual harassment, a non-compete agreement, whatever it might be. You should pay attention to the client testimonials that the lawyer has on the website or other places so you can find out what other clients have said about that lawyer.
Finally, you should meet with the lawyer face-to-face to be sure that you are comfortable working with that lawyer.
