Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here to see my ratings information) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Generally, people file complaints against the union without the representation of an attorney. The average fee for an attorney sometimes can be anywhere between $200 and $400 an hour and that can make it very expensive for most people that are in the Union. In fact, that's expensive for most people in general. However, because you are dealing with a body of administrative law that requires a lot of experience and understanding of the nuance of it, then I would recommend hiring an attorney .
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 District of Columbia LRS click here and search for an employment attorney.
