Why Should I Choose Brian Hannemann As My Sexual Harassment Attorney?
When I take a case, I do so with the intention of trying it in front of a jury, and I prepare accordingly from day one. While taking a case all the way to trial is a daunting task, I have been doing it for decades. Unless a lawyer can tell you that they try cases regularly, win them, and point to published results and awards, then they are just a slick marketing lawyer who has no business representing you. I try cases every year in courts all across Southern California, and occasionally in Northern California. You should ask the lawyer you want to hire to tell you about the most recent case he or she took to trial and won. Unless they can tell you about a case that they took to trial and won at trial within the past year, you will be better off going to a different law firm, and getting a real sexual harassment trial lawyer, like me.
Hannemann Law Firm has an excellent reputation. The Google reviews and AVVO reviews are all first rate, and compelling. From time to time, a former client will say something not too flattering, but like any story, there are always two sides. Look for the overwhelming number of positive reviews, from dozens of my former clients who all give high praise and the highest reviews possible. Look up the case numbers, and see for yourself how many cases just like yours we have tried and won. Defense attorneys will know from the very beginning that we are not here to try and settle a case for a quick buck; they’ll know we are here to win, and that they’re in for a dogfight. They know they better bring their best because we always do. As a result, they always have respect for us and treat us like the preeminent lawyers we are. We get premium settlement offers because they are realistic in their assessment of risks in trying to take a case to trial against us. It’s paradoxical but true: the more likely we are to go to trial and win, the less likely it is that we will have to. So, we always prepare for trial and expect to go. It is a surprise that a case settles, but that is the way it happens.
The Information Clients Need To Have
When you meet with your lawyer, you will need to provide them with a current pay stub and information about your employer, such as the size of the company, the address, any information you might have about their insurance, and whether or not they’ve previously been or are currently involved in another lawsuit. You should also be prepared to list the names of anyone with whom you’ve discussed the case, and an email, text message, or social media correspondence that relates to the case. It is important to be honest with your lawyer because it will be problematic if they discover anything you have not told them later on. For example, if you have a pending or prior lawsuit, an open criminal case, a warrant, a restraining order, a domestic violence charge, a 5150 hold, a case that went through small claims court, a workers’ compensation claim, or have been on disability or unemployment, then you should provide that information so that they can deal with it appropriately. You will only harm your case by concealing this type of information. Most of this information is not harmful, but it can be used to destroy your credibility if you should get caught lying about it. Always tell your lawyer the truth, about everything, no exceptions.
