Severance Agreements

An employer has just announced that you are being terminated from your job.  As if that were not distressing enough, the employer also furnishes you with a multipage severance agreement, chock full of legal jargon.  The agreement offers a modest amount of money in exchange for your waiver of many of your potential claims and your consent to various terms.  Buried in the verbiage is a clause that mentions your right to consult with an attorney about this important legal document.

The attorneys at the Law Office of Curtis Cooper, LLC help to guide clients through this trying time, beginning with a thorough review of the severance agreement itself, to make sure that the client clearly understands its terms.  After that, clients naturally want to know if a particular severance agreement is adequate.   If the client is not satisfied with the terms of the severance agreement, Curtis Cooper is adept at responding in ways that encourage the employer to make a better offer rather than face an adversarial course of action.  Curtis Cooper looks at the many factors at play in severance situations in order to tailor his approach to each client and maximize his or her recovery.
