If you’re experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace, your first act should be to contact an attorney. Attorneys are skilled counselors who have years of experience giving a voice to the oppressed. But they offer countless other benefits to your case. It’s not an understatement to say that having an attorney will often determine whether your case results in a successful lawsuit or not. That said, you shouldn’t wait to contact an attorney. A quality legal counselor will work with you even if you don’t have much money to pay up front. So again, if you’re experiencing sexual harassment, call or email us as soon as possible.
A Common Misconception: It’s Too Expensive to Hire a Lawyer for a Sexual Harassment Case
People often believe they’ll have to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars out-of-pocket to hire a lawyer. Nothing could be further from the truth. Many employment law attorneys offer free consultations, and they will likely take your case on a contingency fee basis. That means they get paid only if you win your case and receive monetary compensation.
How an Attorney Can Help You Achieve a Fair Outcome in a Sexual Harassment Case
Sexual harassment victims can face difficulty being taken seriously. For one, reporting harassment can leave you feeling alone and isolated. In addition, you may not know your rights or have the self-confidence to assert them in the face of stigma and gaslighting. Finally, without special knowledge of administrative and legal procedures, you are at risk of being taken advantage of.
The good news is that a lawyer can help remedy all of these limitations. Let’s explore in more detail how a lawyer can help you.
