Caused me anxiety in finding another job.
They wont settle up with me on my last checks.
I was with the company for 4 years.
Just really need some help.
A: When choosing an attorney for this legal issue consider: specialization, experience, results, character, compatibility. You want an attorney with a verdict or two in a sexual harassment case because the defense counsel will do a background check and even make calls to other defense attorneys who may have done business with your attorney. You also want to choose someone you can work with. You will be a partner with your attorney, and so think of it like picking a friend. You want both competency and communication. Justia offers a directory or course, and in our state, the "California Employment Lawyers Association" [CELA.org] lists attorneys devoting more than 90% of their practice to representing employees. http://www.employee-rights-atty.com. Interstate, the "National Employment Lawyers Association" offers the same consumer focus.
