We get a lot of phone calls and emails. On most days, we hear form eight to twelve potential clients asking about discrimination, harassment, non-compete clauses, severance agreements, failure to pay overtime, and other employment issues.  Those calls range from local issues in Arlington, Fairfax, Alexandria, and other areas in northern Virginia and the District, to calls from individuals whose employers are defense contractors often based in Reston or Herndon, but the individuals themselves are personally located in Iraq, Afghanistan, or another foreign nation.

Every call is unique, but there are some things that will help you hire an attorney regardless of your reason for calling. Here’s a list of the first five steps:

1. Talk About Money – Seriously, folks.  Don’t be afraid to talk about money.  You are calling to hire a firm such as ours to do a service.  We, in turn, have a business to run.  Our decisions are not exclusively about money, but we cannot enter into any agreement without discussing it.  There’s no point in trying to avoid it.

The Erlich Law Office is also very proud to announce the creation of our new blog, for which this will be the first entry.  We want this blog to be an accessible and informative resource for anyone who wants to be sure that they’re being treated fairly on the job.

The blog will feature updates and insights into recent developments in employment law in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, as well as federal law.  We will provide updates containing information and reports on the proposal, discussion, debate, and passage of legislation on the federal level and on the state level in Virginia, Maryland, and the District.  Furthermore, the blog will cover judicial decisions and relevant precedent in state and applicable federal courts.  Our goal is to take developments in legislation and jurisprudence and make it easy for you to understand and apply to your own situation. If, after reading one of our blog entries, you feel like you need to speak to an attorney, please contact us.
