When is the right time to call a lawyer?
A very unfortunate irony is that many of our clients contact us too late as a result of fearing the potential costs of retaining a lawyer. In fact, with almost no exceptions, the earlier you contact a lawyer the better. Many times there are steps you can take at the very beginning of a problem (or potential problem) which can save thousands of dollars down the road. The best time to address a wrongful dismissal is usually in the hiring letter/contract.
A prominent Canadian businessperson and client of ours once told us that paying for our advice is actually a good way to make money. We agree. If we cannot add value we will say so in our first phone call, which is free. So if you even think you might want legal advice, please consider calling us to hear what we think.
