When you first meet with your DC employment attorney, you will likely evaluate him or her. Likewise, the Washington DC attorney will also evaluate you and how you will likely seem in front of the jury. In particular, an attorney will look for personality traits that appear pleasant or not pleasant. While this is typically a subjective process, there are certain statements that may tip off a DC employment attorney that a particular plaintiff may be trouble. The following statements may raise a red flag to the attorney who may feel suspicious or skeptical about the potential client:
- I have spoken with other attorneys, but nobody wants to take my case because they don’t want to go up against a big company.
- “I didn’t do anything wrong. Everyone there does the same thing that I did, but I was the only one who was fired.”
- “My supervisor didn’t like me – that’s why my performance reviews don’t accurately reflect my real performance.”
- “The company always settles this type of case to avoid publicity, so you don’t have to worry that they will fight this case.”
- “My coworkers support me, but they are too afraid of losing their own jobs. But I think they will tell the truth under oath.”
- “I know my case is worth millions.”
