Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
should you hire another attorney, yes, if you are pursuing a case for discrimination under the ADA it is not in your best interests to go up against a government employer without a local employment discrimination attorney. It is best if you want to pursue your justice that you hire the attorney as it significantly increases your chances of success in these cases.
