Ohio Unemployment Lawyers

"The best. Brian really came through for me when I needed them. He was available to answer all my questions, made the process simple, and got me the benefits I deserved."  Tina, 2017

Good and hard workers lose their jobs on a daily basis and start their unemployment claims and appeals without an unemployment attorney because they have full expectations of receiving the compensation they deserve. To their surprise, their former employer throws up roadblocks and obstacles in their path for the sole purpose of minimizing the premiums they pay to Unemployment.  We help these employees get the benefits they deserve.

Even though you may be rightly due compensation, your former employer’s poor payroll records or desperate attempt to minimize their expenses may leave you without the benefits you earned to care for your family and yourself during these difficult economic times while you search for new employment.

 

Although it may seem obvious that you have a right to compensation, moving forward on your own with unemployment appeals and hearings may leave you with a denied unemployment determination and even with ODJFS demanding you pay back benefits.

 

Do not let yourself be fooled by the seemingly informal nature of the unemployment review commission telephone hearings, because these are real hearings, governed by laws and procedures, and they may be your best and last chance to present evidence that you are due benefits.

 

No Fees Until You Win

Smith's Law Offices offers Free Initial Consultations.  We additionally offer contingency agreements whenever possible, with no up-front fee.

We collect a fee ONLY if we are successful in obtaining your unemployment benefits for you.

You have nothing to risk or lose by calling Smith's Law Offices for your free consultation, so call us today before any of your unemployment appeal rights are lost.

Whether you just received an unemployment denial and need to appeal or are about to have an unemployment hearing, we can help.

Improve Your Opportunity to Obtain Unemployment Benefits

 

The unemployment benefit appeal process does provide opportunities to obtain a determination in your favor, but you must have knowledge of the laws, the rules, and have the required tools to obtain and present evidence on your behalf.

 

We have the expertise and experience to navigate through the Unemployment Appeal process and to present the best case possible to obtain the benefits you deserve.

 

The fact is, ODJFS does not operate based on what you know to be true, unless that truth can be shown to them, proven to them, and explained in a way that they can understand that Ohio statutes and rules require them to give you benefits.

 

It is a simple decision: If you want to increase your chances of obtaining benefits, take advantage of a free consultation with the licensed attorneys at Smith's Law Offices.
