Should You Sign a Severance Agreement?
If you have been presented with a severance package, you may have many questions-the critical one we hear the most often is whether the termination was unlawful, and what legal claims will be released upon signing the agreement.
Knowing the answer is critical for you in deciding how you are going to move forward. Too often, people either walk away from legitimate legal claims or invest months to years in a lawsuit that turns out not to be worth the time or the money. And all for want of an answer to this very question.
This is why our employment law process is designed to help you make informed decisions at every step from start to finish- whether "finish" means pursuing a lawsuit, pursuing a settlement, or accepting the severance and walking away. The first step is to complete our Solutions Roadmap, which is 100% confidential and 100% free.

Some other things you should know:
- The reason our response is not immediate is that this is not an automated marketing process, or something driven by AI. A human member of our team will review your answers and provide you with preliminary feedback.
- Though we cannot establish an attorney-client relationship with you based on an online form submission, all information that you provide is still subject to the attorney-client privilege and will never be shared outside of our firm without your permission.
- We will follow up with you to see if you would like to take the next step of scheduling a consultation- this is how we are best able to help people in situations like yours. But if you decide after receiving our preliminary feedback that you do not want to pursue the matter or discuss it further with us, all you have to do is let us know and we can take you off our follow up list.
