Customer Question
Hi, I am Local...

Hi, I am Local 290 union carpenter, I am looking for representation in a situation of employment discrimination based on favoritism in Union among members

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I am in Suffolk county LI, New York

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, I suspect at this point that I am not getting work from our hiring list system based on a long lasting poor relationship of my prior employer for 20 years who happens to be my brother.

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

I haven't worked for them in the last few years. I've only gotten jobs from out of state contractors which prohibits my from continuous employment.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
