How do I find a lawyer to represent me after representing myself at a Personnel Board prehearing.

I made the mistake of believing that I was capable of effectively defending myself against an Adverse Action (termination)from the state agency I worked for. My union will not represent me. The agency is offering to allow me to resign my position and clean out my personnel file but I would be obligated to withdraw my unemployment claim, agree not to seek employment with the agency, and give up any right sue them in the future. There is a criminal case that is associated with the alleged causes for the action that my public defender is confident we will win.

The California Employment Lawyers Assoc. is an organization for attorneys who represent employees. The membership list is available at www.cela.org. You can search by various fields, including practice areas. Go there, and search for attorneys who represent government employees. Figure out where your SPB hearing will be held, and look for an attorney in that area.

Good luck.
