There are many lawyers across California. There are approximately 1500 or so who would classify themselves exclusively as a wrongful termination lawyer. A wrongful termination lawyer is someone who exclusively represents employees alleging that they were wrongfully terminated from their job. Usually, these lawyers work on a contingency fee which means they only get paid if they are successful in recovering a sum of money for the client.
Who is the Best Wrongful Termination Lawyer?
There are lots of fantastic wrongful termination lawyers in California. However, the best lawyer on the planet will do a terrible job on your case if he or she does not have the time or energy to dedicate to it. There are numerous public accounts of great attorney’s who simply became too busy that they failed to file someone’s case on time or who neglected the case and it got dismissed for failure to prosecute.
There are many different types and sizes of wrongful discharge cases, and it would be wise to hire the attorney who seems best suited for your case. That could be a “big-name” attorney in a highrise, or it might be your cousin’s friend who just started practicing employment law six months ago and doesn’t even have an office yet.
Therefore, the best attorney for your case isn’t necessarily the guy who recently got a multimillion dollar verdict. It is more likely the attorney who believes in your case and is willing to invest his time, money, and efforts to ensure its success. Therefore, we feel it is extremely important that you feel comfortable that your lawyer is going to give your case the effort that is necessary. Some cases require more, some less. It all depends.
Branigan Robertson – A Different Kind of Wrongful Termination Lawyer
Mr. Robertson takes his job seriously, and he only takes cases where the employer has committed a serious wrong which damaged the employee in a significant way. The results he has obtained so far in his career prove that his litigation and negotiation strategy work extremely well. Mr. Robertson is also picky – only taking cases in which he is 100% confident that his client is telling the truth and nothing but the truth.
Mr. Robertson only takes a few cases each year and puts a lot of effort into each one. Some lawyers have the mentality that “more cases means I’ll make more money.” Rarely that proves to be true. Therefore, if you believe that you have a case, we urge you to call our office to see if Mr. Robertson is interested. Even if he doesn’t take your case, he will likely refer to you someone he believes will have the time and energy to throw themselves behind your employment case.
