Should an attorney help write my severance agreement?

Do I need an employment law specialist to have a constructive termination/severance agreement written? My case is unique in that I am not being let go, but I think it would be best for both me and my employer if we parted ways.

Been here 15 years.

Three reasons to spend two hours of an attorney's

I often counsel employees on settlement agreements for the purposes of

1) making sure you know what, if any, potential claims you are waiving,

2) explaining technical language, and

3) suggesting more advantageous drafting.

My hourly fee is $195 -- two hours is usually more than enough. Analysis of complex claims or stock options can take longer.
