Five Ways an Unemployment Lawyer Can Help YouUpdated: 2020-12-13 by Lisa Guerin
Learn how a lawyer can assist you with your unemployment case in State.
If you have a straightforward unemployment claim, you will likely be able to file for unemployment benefits on your own, without any help from a lawyer. Your claim is relatively simple if you can easily meet your state's earnings requirements to qualify for benefits, and you and your employer agree that you lost your job through no fault of your own (for example, because you were laid off or had to quit when your military spouse was transferred to another state).
But if your case is more complicated or your claim for benefits is denied, it might make sense to consult with or hire an unemployment lawyer to represent you. Select your state from the list below to learn more.
