Anytime an employee is terminated or quits and is not able to find a job right away, one of the issues is whether the employee should receive unemployment compensation. In many unemployment cases the stakes are high because if the former employee loses, the State of Washington will demand that he or she repay any money that has been paid to him or her by the Employment Security Department (ESD).
Jim Gray has represented a number of former employees at their hearings in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) or at the Commissioner’s Review Office. If you have been terminated or quit, Jim Gray will evaluate your case for receiving unemployment and tell you whether he thinks you need an attorney to represent you. If you do decide to hire Jim to represent you, he will tell you what information he needs from you to help him fight the case and what he will do as part of his representation.
