How To Get A New Case Evaluation Appointment With Gunderson Employment Law

I Think I Need A Lawyer!

This is the best way to get a new case evaluation appointment with me. Please use this form once and only once to request a time to meet with me to discuss whether we may be a good fit as attorney and client. The purpose of this form is to set up an initial case screening and permit a conflict of interest check, to make sure that I get your contact information into my system accurately, and for a variety of other efficiencies that the online system creates for us. I will do my best to accommodate your scheduling needs, and as a default, I typically set appointments in the afternoons.

Typically, this meeting is done over Zoom, for safety and convenience. If you have not used Zoom before, I strongly recommend that you download it and give it a test run before our meeting to make sure everything works. I also strongly recommend participating in the videoconference using a desktop or laptop computer. Yes, Zoom is cell phone enabled and that is sometimes handy, but it works MUCH better on a full computer. In all events, I look forward to discussing your case via our videoconference soon. The link to the meeting, the meeting ID, and the passcode for the meeting are all set out below.

When Can I Get A Meeting?

My next available meeting opening is in the afternoon of 29 May 2023.

I generally try to only schedule one new case evaluation a day, so that I have time to provide service to my existing clients. I generally schedule new case evaluation meetings in the order I receive inquiries originating from this page.

What Information Should I Give Here?

Feel free to provide a brief description of what you understand the issue to be, such as “Retaliation for filing workers’ compensation claim,” or “sex discrimination.” We will discuss the details of the story when we videoconference, but it’s helpful for me to understand what you think is going on.

It’s also helpful to indicate how long it’s been since the last time the problem occurred. By this I mean “the last time my boss mistreated me,” or “the day I was fired,” or whatever the equivalent of that might be for your situation. Dates and timing are very important in this business!

If you have a severance offer pending, please mention that. I handle severance offer reviews differently than other kinds of new matters, for a number of reasons. I explain more about the terms of that kind of consultation, and why, in my description of severance offer reviews.

Please hold on to very sensitive information until we speak. One of the reasons I have this form and this screening process is to check for conflicts of interest before I take in any delicate information, on the off chance that certain of my existing clients might be affected by your situation.

Employees: please give me your PERSONAL e-mail address, not a work address.

Okay, Let’s Go!

Filling out this form does not create an attorney-client relationship. This form is to help determine if Gunderson Employment Law would be a good fit for your legal needs.

Please double-check if all of the information is correct, particularly your e-mail address and telephone number. I presume, unless you indicate otherwise, that the number you give is a personal cellular phone that can receive both calls and text messages.
