Office Hours

Looking for a quick answer to your employment law question and not sure where to start? Want to bounce an issue off an employment lawyer? Need advice but aren’t sure if you are ready for a long-term engagement or litigation? Rodman Employment Law Office Hours may be exactly what you need. During your confidential, 30-minute consultation, you will receive feedback from one of our attorneys on your employment issue(s) which would hopefully provide you with a better understanding of what you need to do to achieve your goals. Book a 30-minute consultation with an experienced employment lawyer today.

What Do I Get?

Rather than entering into a potentially expensive or long-term engagement with a law firm, our 30-minute consult can be used to quickly determine if you truly need a lawyer and, if so, whether hiring one would be worth the money it would cost. Think your case deserves a contingency fee? The consult can be used to determine if that is indeed the case. If it becomes clear that a lawyer can be valuable to you, the consult can then be used to lay out a plan-of-attack for your specific case, and you and your lawyer can next discuss what steps beyond the initial consult should be taken by both you and your lawyer to advance your case and protect your interests.

During your confidential, 30-minute consultation, you will have the undivided attention of an experienced employment lawyer. Our lawyers handle cases involving:

And many others not listed. If possible, our attorneys will review any documentation you send to us in advance of your 30-minute consultation at no extra charge. You should come prepared with questions (more on this below) and an understanding of what you hope to get out of your 30-minutes. We strive to answer your questions and provide insight on your case.

How Much Does It Cost?

A 30-minute consultation costs $250 and can be paid by check, eCheck, and all major credit cards.

Get Started


How To Prepare

The first thing you should do to prepare for your call with one of our attorneys is to write a list of questions you would ideally like to have answered on the call. While this is not a requirement, our attorneys do find it helpful to use your questions as a guide for their discussion with you. We ask that you submit any list of questions as far in advance of the call as possible – which will give us the best chance to review them prior to the call (no promises). If there are documents or communications that you know will be necessary for the attorney to review to provide answers to your questions, please send such materials along in advance of the call. If the attorney scheduled for your call has the time to review your questions and materials prior to your call, you will not be charged for that review time.

Understanding Your Objective

After you put your questions down on paper, we’d ideally like you to identify your overall objective (i.e., the ultimate outcome you seek). Our lawyers will not be shy about sharing their views about your situation with you – including how best to achieve your overall objective— but they do not have a crystal ball and we cannot guarantee a particular outcome. Our honest evaluation of your situation will be based on less than the full universe of relevant information available to you at the time of the call, and because of that, there are bound to be factors and variables that our lawyers cannot consider and will have no knowledge of. We will endeavor to provide you with the legal advice and guidance that you seek.

What Happens After

A consultation is a short-term engagement with us. This engagement lasts 30 minutes. If you require legal assistance beyond those 30 minutes, it is up to you to bring that to our attention. You can do this in the form of asking for another consultation or, if you think you are ready for a full-blown traditional legal engagement, you can let us know that as well. This decision does not need to be made during the consultation, and we encourage you to reach back out at any time should you feel additional need for more legal advice. Just remember, we cannot be responsible for decisions you make, or outcomes from decisions you make, unless we have been engaged to represent you and have an opportunity to weigh in on those decisions before you make or express them. Depending upon the circumstances of your case, we may be able to offer you a traditional, and longer, engagement under different terms (i.e., contingency fee, hybrid fee, or hourly fee). Should we agree to such other engagement and should that engagement be on a contingency fee basis, you will receive a credit in the amount of that you paid upon the conclusion of all engagements.

What Our Paid Consultation Clients Say

“Attorney Chuck Rodman at Rodman Employment Law really listened to what I had to say and gave me the legal advice I needed on how to successfully navigate a workplace issue I was experiencing. It only took a 30-minute paid phone consultation with Attorney Rodman to resolve an issue that could have cost me my job. Chuck listened to my concerns and gave me the best path toward my objective. I am happy to say that I would recommend contacting Rodman Employment Law to anyone in need of employment law advice.”
