Written Fee Agreements

Filing & Severance Offer Deadlines
Rigid filing deadlines must be met in prosecuting your case or your rights might be forever lost. In addition, the failure to to accept a severance offer by its deadline will cause the offer to expire. Unless you sign an engagement letter agreement with the Firm, it is solely your responsibility to determine and track filing and severance offer deadlines. Because the Firm receives many inquiries, we may not be able to respond to your correspondence.
