Asked 7 months ago - Saint Louis, MO

I recently spoke with a paralegal an was advised that I should hire a group of lawyers I have been working on my discrimination case for 3 years now an now it as finally gotten to a point where they have offered me a settlement to end the case but I do not like the offer given an they will not accept my counter offer I was hired pregnant and fired due to my pregnancy. It has not went to federal court as of yet because I want to make sure I have lawyers first but from what I was told my case would be a heave case load for only one lawyer to handle my case also its pretty much over I have already won my case im just not happy with the settlement offer given an once again they will not accept my counter offer someone please help me

    Answered . You should call the Missouri Bar Lawyer Referral Service at (573) 636-3635 and request an employment lawyer located in the St. Louis area. http://www.mobar.org/lrs/clients.htm From the website it looks like they charge a $25 fee for the referral, but in exchange you get a free 30 minute consultation with the lawyer they refer you to. I hope this information helps.
