Mr. Early did not take my case. The end result was that he affirmed, I probably have a case.
Mr. Early sifted through paragraph after paragraph of a technical analysis, probably fueled by my anxiety of the situation, combined with the taking of copious amounts of doctor-prescribed painkillers. A wrongful termination case in the works has left my sensitive mind messed up. I bombarded the poor man with paragraph after paragraph, it probably more resembled a Hunter S. Thompson novel about his time in the Las Vegas desert, than a legitimate legal issue.
But he sifted through it. He kindly declined to take the case because it is too complex and uncertain on it's surface. But the end result, is he assured me this probably looks like a legitimate cause of action for a lawsuit against my employer, a gross violator.
He did all this on a Saturday and a Sunday, by the way. Take a day off, Mr. Early.

Mr. Early was very informative about my topic and even expressed empathy for what I am going through. He spent over 40 min., of his time speaking with me about my matter. After speaking with him, I am hopeful I am on the right path.
