Unemployment Appeals For Benefits

People from entry-level workers to CEOs often lose their jobs through no fault of their own. Both Kansas and Missouri have unemployment benefit programs designed for these very circumstances, allowing people to bridge the financial gap until they can secure new employment. Unfortunately, many employers deny benefits to these people, often for the sole purpose of minimizing their expenditures. If you have been denied unemployment benefits, you can fight for your rights with help from an attorney.

My law firm, Kalberg Law Office L.L.C., provides quality representation for unemployment appeals at a fair and equitable price. Based in Overland Park, Kansas, I handle unemployment cases in Kansas and Missouri. The initial unemployment appeal process is done in writing and hearings are done over the phone, so I can provide efficient and effective representation regardless of your location.

Legal Representation Is Vital To A Successful Appeal

Frequently, people believe that their right to unemployment benefits is so obvious that they take on the initial unemployment appeal hearing themselves and are then shocked when they are still denied benefits. Do not let the seemingly informal nature of the initial appeal hearing fool you. It is not a simple phone conference, but rather a fully adversarial proceeding. These evidentiary hearings are essentially mini-trials and are typically the first and last chance you will get to present evidence to support your unemployment appeal. While additional appeals are available, they are often an uphill battle.

As your lawyer, I can help you avoid potential pitfalls in your unemployment appeal by intervening early in the process. When handled efficiently, these matters can be resolved quickly, and I will make sure you understand what to expect at every step.
