					How to Choose a San Diego Employment Attorney

another; especially in this litigious society where even one misstep can land you in court.
However, when it comes to employer/employee relations, it is often the worker who gets the
short end of the deal. In these situations, you will want to hire a San Diego employment
attorney to represent your interests against employers in the Orange County area. But you don’t
want to hire just any lawyer out of the phone book. You want someone who is knowledgeable
and skilled enough to assist you with your case.




When searching for a San Diego employment law attorney, the first place where you will want
to begin your search is through people in your social network. Ask friends and family members
if they had a need for an employment attorney and who they hired. The major benefit to talking
to people in your circle first is that you will often get honest opinions about the quality of the
attorney’s work. This is important because you need to be certain they are a good lawyer who
will do the work you are paying them to do.

You will want to compile a list of names. Expand beyond San Diego to the any Orange County
employment attorney if you have to in order to get at least 3-5 names on your list. Not every
attorney works well with every client. Therefore you want a good list to choose from. Make an
appointment to talk to the attorney in person. Your goal is to learn as much about them as you
possibly can to help you make your decision. Ask about their work history, education, as well as
how they manage their cases. If they seem disorganized or don’t have a lot of experience with
your type of case then you will be better off passing on that attorney.

While speaking with the lawyer, you will also want to find out how much they charge and what
their billing schedule is. Although you want to pick a lawyer based on the quality of their work
rather than their fee, this will affect whether you can afford them or not. Lastly, you want to
check with the state bar association to make sure they do not have any outstanding complaints.
The employment attorney Orange County professional that you choose will affect the outcome
of your case. Take your time and choose wisely.
