Pospis Law, PLLC offers a variety of legal services – described in more detail below – ranging from “behind the scenes” counseling, to pre-litigation negotiations, to full-blown litigation in court. Our fees depend on the specific services, as well as the type of case.
- Counseling/Advice: If you have encountered a situation where you believe you would benefit from legal advice – even if you do not wish to retain an attorney to speak on your behalf – we can assist.
- Agreement/Contract Review: Do you have an employment agreement you have been asked to sign? Perhaps your employer has offered you a severance payment conditioned on your signing a severance agreement, which may contain nondisclosure, non-compete, confidentiality, and/or other restrictive language. We can help you understand the agreement (including specific provisions of concern) and, if appropriate, attempt to negotiate more favorable terms.
- Demand Letter/Negotiations: In some cases, you may wish to explore the possibility of resolving your matter without litigation. A well-crafted demand letter which reviews the relevant law and explains how it applies to your specific facts in a logical, persuasive way can be an invaluable tool in fully and fairly resolving your matter. We have resolved many cases this way, sparing our clients the time, expense, and publicity associated with litigation.
- Litigation: Sometimes, a demand letter isn’t enough, and filing a complaint in court or an administrative agency is necessary to obtain optimal results. (Note that prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.) We are happy to discuss the costs and benefits of litigation, and to pursue all available remedies on your behalf. Experienced legal counsel can guide you through the often-confusing and complex litigation process, as well as evaluate the benefits and detriments of various venues where a complaint may be filed. For example, claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 must first be presented to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and filing a complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights or the New York City Commission on Human Rights will trigger an “election of remedies” which will limit your right to go to court later.
There is no “one size fits all” solution. Contact us today for a free phone consultation to discuss your rights and how we may assist you.
