How do I prepare for this meeting?

We would ask that you provide any written material you think may be relevant to your situation. For example, if you are seeking our advice following termination of your employment, it would be helpful for us to see a copy of your employment contract (if you have one), any written information about your benefits or bonus entitlements, any email or other correspondence from your employer you think might be important, your termination letter, and any severance offer from your ex-employer. Or, if you are an employer seeking our assistance regarding one of your employees, you may wish to bring relevant excerpts from his or her HR file. And in all cases, your own notes regarding your workplace experience can provide useful background for us.

Beyond that, it is our job to help you tell us your story. If there is particular information we need from you, we will ask for it, and if you are unsure of the answer, we can help you find it. We know that it can be daunting to meet with a lawyer for the first time, and to discuss what were often upsetting and stressful events, and it is our goal to make your initial meeting as trouble-free as possible.
