Q: What type of lawyer to file suit against company found guilty by NYS Dept. of Labor?
My complaint against billion+dollar US/Canadian company was investigated by NYS Dept.Labor:company admitted 'guilt' & Dept. determined 'guilty', fined & penalized. NYS Dept. lead investigator informed me that because company already admitted guilt (IE: violated NYS Mold Remediation Laws) during this investigation there would be no further litigation in NYC and/or NYS court, the company was ready to negotiate "quick settlement" to avoid wasting time & money for their legal council to litigate case w/admitted'guilt'in stateDept.investigation.He stated that simply put, this billion dollar company waiting to hear from my council"with a number",hence I need to retain council to simply"file/serve/contact/negotiate/settle/collect quick contingency fee"-I have received conflicting & incorrect info regarding type of lawyer to retain to do so, ranging from PI,E&L,civil, toxic tort etc. In addition,I am legally disabled&unable to find apropos legal council (I have all necessary doc&evidence) NYC.

A: It looks like you've already done some research in trying to determine what type of lawyer would best suit your needs. And you lay on the table a number of areas that show diligence on your part in contemplating your options. Maybe one option is for you to reach out to firms - it looks like you've been listening to what others have been saying about the type of firm you need. You could reach out to firms to discuss your matter in further detail. Speaking with lawyers could help you answer your question and help you make the best possible selection. You could use the tab above (Find-a-Lawyer), or you could search independently on your own online. Most law firms would offer you a free initial consult, so you have nothing to lose reaching out to law firms. Good luck
