- Focuses on employment law. If the lawyer also practices other areas (such as personal injury), this should be a warning sign. In big cities like Los Angeles, employment law is a very specialized field and the best usually concentrate on this one area. Moreover, not all employment attorneys do all types of employment law. Some don’t handle wage and hour cases or class actions etc… Is an experienced attorney.
- Usually, you want an attorney with at least 10 years of experience. How good your lawyer is will likely have an effect on how much or whether you can recover damages at all.
- Is accomplished in the field. Look to see what awards the attorney has received, (for example, Superlawyers, AV rating, etc…); if they speak at legal conferences; and that they are members of employment law bar association groups (such as the California Employment Lawyers Association or Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Labor and Employment section.)
- Is praised by current/former clients. One way to possibly see if you will be a happy client is to see what other clients’ experiences are. Many good employment attorneys will have testimonials on their website and have other online reviews. See our testimonials.
