Should You Expect to Pay Consultation Fees for an Employment Attorney? The “I Got Fired” Podcast With Rebecca Pontikes

We were thrilled to have Rebecca Pontikes recently join us for our podcast. In it, we talked about consulting fees in employment law cases. We’ve discussed this issue before in an earlier podcast, where we touched on it briefly with Jacob Small, but on today’s show, we will be dealing with this issue exclusively.

Rebecca, who has a sharp bent toward women’s rights, is a plaintiff’s side employment lawyer based in Boston, where she only works on behalf of individual employees. The focus of her practice is on discrimination against caregivers—moms and dads who get penalized at work because they have to care for either their kids or their aging parents. She also does a lot of work around sexual harassment and with Title IX plaintiffs. In addition to that, she deals with the whole gamut of employment work, especially with noncompete agreements, because they have a lot of health care and technology employers that require these agreements in Boston.

Listen to find out what Rebecca has to tell you today about whether you should expect to pay consulting fees in employment-related cases.
