Well keep looking -- if you have the right to sue letter, that is a big step. Use this AVVO website to look for those attorneys who handle civil rights matters!!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced attorney to be fully aware of your rights. Finally, please forgive any typographical errors in my note!
Use the "find a lawyer" link to schedule consults with employment attorneys and ask if they would take your case on contingency.
You can reach Colorado Legal Solutions by phone or email. Stephen Harkess is an attorney licensed in the state and federal courts of Colorado and Massachusetts. This answer is for general information only and does not create an attorney client relationship between Stephen Harkess or Colorado Legal Solutions and any person. Sometimes free advice is only worth as much as you paid for it. You should schedule a consultation with an attorney to discuss the specifics of your legal issues.
Perhaps you can borrow some money from family or friends to invest in this case.
You are not required to have to have an attorney to file a formal EEO complaint. Once you make it formal, you can keep looking for an attorney. Many of them will want to have the ROI in hand when they begin to assess your case, but yes, it will likely cost you something for that kind of review. If you have questions, the letter you got should tell you who specifically you can call. Additionally, talk to your union rep and see what they are willing to do for you, and be sure that you go formal before the deadline if that's what you want to do.
Notice: My answer to your question is general information. It does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not governed by confidentiality rules. This general information is not a substitute for sitting down and discussing your circumstances with an attorney.
