What occurs if I want additional legal services from my attorney?
The Legal Strategy Session (“LSS”) service of HKM Employment Attorneys LLP provides for an hour consultation with you. If you want additional services and/or consultation from your attorney, you can enter into a separate agreement with your attorney or sign up for another LSS with HKM Employment Attorneys LLP (and we will assign you to the same lawyer).
What occurs after an hour is up?
Usually, an hour is sufficient to answer all of your questions and get the advice you need. That being said, nobody will have a stopwatch, and nobody is going stop your attorney consultation right at an hour. If the consultation, however, is likely to go well beyond an hour, your attorney will likely ask that you enter into a new agreement directly with your attorney or get another, second LSS with HKM Employment Attorneys LLP.
Is the consultation exactly one hour?
No. Based on our experience, an attorney can usually resolve your issue and give you the advice you need in roughly an hour. Sometimes the consultations will go a little longer, sometimes a little shorter. If you need too much additional time over an hour, your attorney will ask that you enter in a separate agreement or obtain a new hour consultation through HKM Employment Attorneys LLP.
What happens if I want to follow-up with my attorney after the hour consultation?
If you want a separate, additional consultation with your attorney, you will need to make arrangements directly with your attorney or obtain a new LSS from HKM Employment Attorneys LLP.
What type of advice works well with this service?
Really, any type of employment issue is often appropriate for a Legal Strategy Session. Some examples include:
- Review of an employment agreement;
- Review of a non-compete clause;
- Review of a separation agreement;
- An understanding of your rights at work;
- How to deal with co-workers;
- Whether you have been discriminated against;
- Whether you have been paid correctly;
- Questions about wage and hour laws;
- Questions about unions and employee rights; or
- Any other issue related to your work.
