Consult an Attorney if You Have an In-Person Unemployment Hearing

Many lawyers were reluctant to handle unemployment hearings for individuals because the fees were capped by regulation.   But the regulation just changed.  Attorney's can now charge a fee of twice a claimant's weekly benefit amount.  If the case is complex, an attorney can petition for a higher fee.  Attorneys should be willing to take more of these cases.   I know I will.
