The DeBrota Law Firm LLC offers a variety of legal services from telephone consultations to litigation representation. Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, we cannot respond to telephone inquiries from individuals who have not submitted one of the questionnaires below.
Ms. DeBrota personally reviews all questionnaires submitted. However, she does not provide free legal advice or a consultation based upon the submission of a free email review questionnaire. She will review your questionnaire and, based on the information you provide, determine whether you may have a viable legal claim with which she can assist you.
Please scroll down for additional information and all of
the forms for available consultations and services.
Free Email Initial Case Review
If you would like a free review of your employment situation,
please complete and submit our
Free Email Initial Case Review form or click
here to download a form to print, complete and return to us.
We will contact you within one to two business days, if we believe
you may have a viable legal claim against your current or former
employer. The DeBrota Law Firm LLC accepts select legal claims
for representation, on a retainer plus contingency basis. Due
to the large volume of initial review requests we receive, we
can not always respond to all email contacts. Ms. DeBrota only
represents employees in litigation, accepts a relatively small
number of meritorious cases and only takes those which are not
likely to be resolved through mediation. Litigation representation will only occur when a written representation agreement is signed by you and Ms. DeBrota. If you are interested
in information about mediation services, please scroll
down further for the appropriate form and do not submit the
Free Email Initial Case Review form.
Free advice is often worth what you pay for it. A telephone or Skype consultation with Ms. DeBrota will provide you with legal advice for your specific situation. Just complete and submit
our Telephone Consultation form. Ms. DeBrota will review the information and contact you within two business days to schedule a one hour appointment. The charge for a telephone or Skype consultation is $250. In office consultations are also available for an additional hourly fee, based upon the length of the meeting. If you need to submit more than twenty pages of documentation for Ms. DeBrota to review, please complete the Document Review and Consultation form below.
Document Review and Consultation
It is wise to consult an attorney before signing a severance package,
non-compete agreement, employment contract or other similar legal
document. A review and consulation regarding the legal implications
of various different kinds of documents will allow you to make
an informed decision regarding your options and any potential
legal consequences. If you would like a document review and consultation,
please complete our Document
Review and Consulation form and fax (888-273-1326). Within one to two business
days, Ms. DeBrota will review your form and the documents in question
and contact you to schedule a telephone consultation, for up to
one hour. The Document Review and Consultation fee is $400. In office consultations are also available for an hourly rate fee, based upon the length of the meeting.
Employment Dispute Mediation Request
Ms. DeBrota has spent over 23 years litigating employment and discrimination cases. Expertise such as this makes it more likely the parties will be able to reach a mutually acceptable solution. If you need a mediator with extensive knowledge of the laws applicable to your litigation, please complete our Employment Dispute Mediation Request form and submit it to Ms. DeBrota.
Human Resources Legal Counsel
If you are an employer who needs litigation representation or who would like to improve your employment policies and procedures, help your workplace run more smoothly, retain good employees and decrease the likelihood of disruption from employment related litigation, complete and submit a Human Resources Counsel form.
