Thanks so much for your patience. Whether you hire an attorney is a big decision to make. However, I usually recommend that people hire attorneys if there are difficult issues of law or procedure with which you need help. In my experience, the issues with the facts or the outcomes are best decided by the litigants to a matter themselves. The reasons is because the facts and the outcome are going to be determined by the people involved. However, the procedure and the law can usually best be handled by an attorney. In your case, if you're comfortable with the facts and you are confident in the outcome, I do not believe that you should have any reason to worry and hiring an attorney may just be too expensive. However, there are some options if you decide to do such a thing.

One of the hardest things to do sometimes is find a lawyer that you can trust. Google searches are a good place to start, but usually the lawyers who pay the most can get bumped up to be on the first page regardless of their quality. One thing I recommend is going through your state’s lawyer referral service (LRS). The LRS in each state typically requires the attorney to have several years of practice, be free of discipline, and have adequate staffing to assist people. Here is the link for the Arizona (Pima and Maricopa Counties) LRS - click here

What other questions did you have for me?

Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Thank you. I am confident that the judge will decide in my favor since prior investigation by DES has indicated I am 'on call,' not a part time employee and therefore this employer is not exempt for 'relief of charges to an employer who provides on call employment. Are you familiar with this?
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 24 days ago

You're welcome, and I know what you're talking about generally. Just make sure that you are working to develop a coherent and credible argument. Doing that will set you free. Did you have any other questions for me?

No thank you. A telephone call consult is not necessary at this time.
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 24 days ago

I understand. It's an auto request by the system. Did you have any other questions for me at all?
