Frequently Asked Questions
There are laws in Texas that give employees rights and protections, but whether you have a case depends on the details of your situation. Here’s the good news: your first step is easy. Fill out a contact form on this website or pick up the phone. You can describe what’s happening, and we’ll ask questions to better understand what you’re going through. If we think you have a case, we’ll discuss your options and talk about next steps.
Jackson Spencer attorneys are highly skilled at arguing for justice and negotiating with employers, so we’ll work hard to get a fair settlement for you. If your case needs to go to arbitration or be taken to court, we’re the legal team that will fight for you.
This is one of the oldest recognized communications protections, and it means you can speak freely and frankly to an attorney or prospective attorney about a case. If you’re worried your employer might retaliate against you for seeking legal advice, rest assured — there are laws to protect you from that, too. Call us today for a confidential evaluation.
In most cases, fees get deducted from any settlement that is won. That means you don’t have to pay an attorney up front to take your case or represent you in court. In some situations it makes more sense to hire an attorney by the hour — as for contract negotiations or employment counseling. We’ll fully explain our fees during the initial consultation and will make sure you have all the information you need to move forward.
