I am Attorney David Schiller, based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and this is the home page of my website.
I focus my law practice on areas that are related to employment. If you are deciding whether to sign a non-compete agreement or a severance agreement, if you are being sexually harassed at work, if you have discovered that someone at work is committing a crime, if you were injured at work, if you have been fired and want to know whether your firing was lawful or whether you can collect unemployment benefits, or if you have become disabled, I can help you. The menu on the right side of the page list all of the individual employment law issues I handle and provide more information.
When issues arise, employees should consult an attorney early in the process. It is especially important for the employee to seek counsel when considering how and whether to complain about harassment or other unlawful activity, and whether or not to resign.
How to Get Started
In most situations, a 10-15 minute discussion is the best way to determine whether I can help you. If, for instance, you have just been fired, injured on the job, or have an unemployment hearing coming up, having a short talk to make sure I can help is usually the best route. I can generally evaluate the strength of your case and discuss the fee arrangement (I usually work on contingency, that is, a percentage of the recovery).
If your legal issue is more like: “Is this covenant not to compete enforceable?”, then I typically charge a flat fee (typically $250) to thoroughly review the document(s), and go through everything with you.
If your issue is unemployment benefits, I usually charge a flat fee of around $500 to represent employees at the hearing or on the appeal, as the case may be.
The best way to initiate communication with me is through one of the contact forms. The link for these forms are on the top right of this website. You may also call me at 919-789-4677.
