I have been offered a severance agreement, should I have an attorney review it?

The severance agreement provided by your employer was drafted by their legal counsel, it only makes sense for you to have an attorney looking out for your interests review it as well. Having an attorney review the agreement will make sure that it is a balanced document that will not harm you going forward. Further, the attorney will make sure that you are not waiving any rights that should not be waived. Finally, the attorney can advise whether the compensation is adequate or if you should negotiate a better deal.
