How Can I Find a Good Unemployment Lawyer in Washington?
There are several ways to find a good lawyer to help with your unemployment claim in Washington. The best way to find a lawyer is always through a referral from someone you know. Ask family members, friends, and other professionals you work with whether they can recommend a good employment lawyer.
Lawyers specialize, so your friend’s divorce lawyer won’t be the right person to handle your unemployment appeal. However, lawyers also know other lawyers, so don’t hesitate to ask a well-recommended lawyer in a different field for an employment lawyer referral.
If you can’t find a lawyer through personal referrals, here are a couple of other options:
- Check with the Washington Bar Association for information about lawyer referral services in Washington.
- Use the “Find a Lawyer” tool at the website of the National Employment Lawyers’ Association to find a lawyer specializing in unemployment claims in Washington.
- Check the lawyer directory on Nolo.com for names of employment lawyers in your zip code in Washington.
