If you have been denied Unemployment Benefits, then you may need legal assistance to protect your rights.

Please Contact Bowman Law for a free consultation if you have any questions.
In general, dismissed employees are qualified to receive unemployment benefits except in cases involving willful "misconduct" on the part of an employee. Precisely what constitutes "misconduct," however, can be a subject of significant disagreement. In some cases, former employees are eligible for unemployment benefits even when they resign, provided an employee's decision to leave work is motivated by "good cause attributable to the employer."
Deciding to Hire an Unemployment Benefits Attorney Because you've recently lost your job, you may be looking for ways to cut expenses. Deciding whether to hire an attorney can therefore be a very difficult decision. Sometimes it makes sense for an individual to represent themselves during the unemployment benefits process. These claims can be relatively simple; however, in certain situations, you may want to consider hiring an experienced unemployment benefits attorney. Attorneys often charge reduced or flat rates for these types of matters, making hiring an attorney affordable. Bowman Law's flat rate for unemployment benefits telephone hearings is as low as $350. So when should you consider hiring an attorney? It is wise to consult an attorney when your dismissal is related to other employment law claims, you resigned unwillingly, the terms of your termination were unclear, or when you are unsure of how to appeal an improperly denied claim.
