Customer Question
I am looking for...

I am looking for a someone who can provide legal aid or pro bono services for a case for me whereby I was wrongfully terminated. Can you help me with that?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

NO

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

I was full time

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

I was accused of saying things I did not say and acting in a way that was not true.

Pursuant to the terms of service for the site the Attorneys on the site cannot enter into an Attorney/Client relationship with the customers of the site.

What I can do is get you headed in the right direction by providing the local assistance, Pro Bono and legal aid that can assist you in your area. I provide Pro Bono services in Pima County so I am quite familiar with all of the services available.
