As an employment law firm who exclusively represents employees and independent contractors, we feel it is our professional duty to help individuals who have lost their jobs to get back on their feet. It is our mission to provide the necessary legal support for lower-income individuals to obtain and maintain unemployment benefits during this period of hardship.
Upon filling out our online form, your unemployment benefits question has been sent to our pro bono unemployment benefits legal department. Our pro bono team will reach out to you via text message or email with an answer or response to your inquiry if they feel they can reasonably provide assistance.
We do our best to focus our resources on assisting lower-income individuals in need of unemployment benefits. We typically prioritize hourly-paid, non-exempt, and blue-collar former employees over individuals who were employed with higher-paying, salaried positions.
Our staff is capable of representing non-English speakers, including but not limited to Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, and Arabic.
Our unemployment legal assistance includes the following:
In light of the fact that we are providing these free legal services to individuals in every county in California, our attorneys and administrative staff are unable to actually attend unemployment hearings and/or appeals hearings. We also do not fill out/complete EDD applications or related forms for individuals, but rather consult with them on best practices.
Please understand that no attorney-client relationship has already or will in the future be formed between you and our law office (Crosner Legal, P.C.) at this time.
Yes. Any legal aid to assist low-income individuals in obtaining, maintaining or appealing unemployment benefits is completely free of any charge.
The short answer is no. Please also understand that our unemployment assistance is entirety pro bono (free of any charge) and privately funded by Crosner Legal. As a result, we have limited resources and are unable to respond to every inquiry.
If you do not receive a response from us within 48 hours, we highly recommend you attempt to contact the EDD directly with your inquiries, or you may also try any of the below resources. We have also emailed you a copy of our Do-It-Yourself Guide to Unemployment Benefits & COVID-19 Guide that our law firm created., which are intended as general information only and not specific advice.
It is completely funded by Crosner Legal’s private practice.
For the convenience of our clients, we have access to office facilities throughout California. We aim to make it easier for our clients to meet with us near their homes for initial case intakes and other matters. If you need transportation, we can arrange it in most matters. If you are calling for representation, we will visit you personally in your home or office, at your convenience. Please call us to find out more information about the location nearest your home.
