Yes

No Union

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Claimant work production was Sabotaged, his Supervisor turned the blind eye to his reports. Claimant's Custodian Co-Worker Tarnished Claimant's work, reference Claimant last being employed. Words were exchanged between Claimant and his opponent, because Claimant followed orders and reported both the Co-worker involved, and his Supervisor for their violations. Claimant's Co-Worker, Supervisor, and Manager, concluded that Claimant was in Violation of Alleged company policy, for using Profanity in the work place. Claimant was Terminated for Allegedly using, Profanity in the work place. Underhandedly, Claimant was Terminated for telling on his Co-workers.

martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.

If you sue in court you may end up with a judgment. The judgment generally allows you to levy on bank accounts, lien real estate and work with the sheriff office civil enforcement division. Many lawsuits result in settlement - which expect the judge to encourage. You stand to recover not only your actual losses (compensatory damages) but also interest, costs and legal fees. on occasion special damages (punitive damages) are also available.
