Why Might a Lawyer Not Want to Work With Me?
An Orange County employment attorney can learn a great deal by assessing the positive and negative aspects in a prospective client?s personality. This helps the attorney to assess the possibility of how the client might relate not only to the attorney but ultimately to a jury as well. The process is largely intuitive, but there are certain ?red flags? that can signal to the Orange County employment lawyer that this person might not make a good prospect. Some of these might be:
- ?I?ve been to every law firm in town. They just won?t challenge the big boys. I think they?re scared.?
- ?Corporate?s terrified of cases like mine. They?ll settle. They always do, just so they don?t have to face the press.?
- ?I didn?t do anything that everybody else isn?t doing, so if they didn?t lose their jobs, I shouldn?t have lost mine.?
- ?My boss hates me. My evaluations are always awful and that?s why. My boss wants me to be fired, so he stacked the deck against me.?
- ?Everybody in my office would back me up if they didn?t think they?d get fired for it, but if they?re put on the stand they?ll speak up honestly.?
- ?This case is worth a fortune. It?ll make us both rich.?
- ?You know my case will bring a huge settlement, so I don?t see why I should have to pay any costs at all. That should be your responsibility, not mine.?
