How to Find the Best Overtime Pay Lawyer in NY, NJ or CT for You
Are you looking for a New York, New Jersey or Connecticut Overtime Pay Lawyer and want to determine who is the best attorney for you? You’ve come to the right place. Our Award-Winning Overtime Pay Attorneys have successfully fought for the rights of employees in the workplace and got them paid. An employer’s failure to pay salaries and other compensation owed is illegal and wrong. Our Overtime Lawyers will advise your of your rights and help you maximize your compensation against your employer (or former employer). We will review your proper wage rate. It is important to work with an attorney who is familiar with the nuances and differences between the federal and state proscribing proper wages payments – some laws are more favorably than others and, as such, it is critical to develop and implement an intelligent legal strategy from the outset. As part of our strategy, we will consider whether your employer is personally liable for your unpaid wages.
While there are many NY, NJ & CT Overtime Pay Attorneys who claim to be super lawyers, not every lawyer’s skill set may be best suited for your fact specific case. Some lawyers handle only divorce cases while others handle only small claims cases. As you can imagine, not every legal skill set may be transferable to your case. As such, they may not have the necessary experience or skill to give you the best representation possible. By analogy, ask yourself, “Why would you hire an electrician to fix your broken faucet?” The statutes governing overtime pay are complex and arcane, at times.
