Legal Leverage with The Spiggle Law Firm
Our DIY Self-Help Legal Leverage Program can help you get the best severance after wrongful termination.
The DIY Self-Help Legal Leverage Program is a 7-step video and e-book series designed to walk non-lawyers through the steps used by experts to analyze legal claims and to decide what a case is really worth.
But this program does more than just help you decide if you have a case. It helps you decide what to do next.
You don’t need a legal degree to understand that what your employer is doing is illegal! Remember – your employer doesn’t have a legal degree either.
This course is the only one of it’s kind arming executives with legal prowess so they can negotiate their own terms.
DISCLAIMER: You must join the program before you make another move. One misstep and you could lose all your leverage over your employer! Each mistake could cost you thousands of dollars.
Finished first part of the class and looking forward to launching the next module! Amazing organization of materials. ... This material is fabulous and I have done a great deal of curriculum work throughout my career! Wonderful!!!!!
After 10 years on the job, you get called into human resources.
Numb with disbelief, you take the cardboard box they gave you and pack up your stuff.
You feel humiliated as someone from security stands beside you, waiting to usher you out the door.
When you get home, you look at the five-page severance offer and you wonder...
You no doubt have a whirlwind of questions going through your head right now. But first, you go into survival mode and consider what it means for you financially.
How will you and your family handle your loss of income?
If are the primary breadwinner, there could be serious trouble on the horizon.
Depending on the terms of your severance offer, you could soon go deep into debt, consider bankruptcy or even face foreclosure on your home.
Maybe your loss of income will be manageable, but what about your benefits? Your entire family receives health insurance through your employer. You have a family member with a preexisting medical condition – they absolutely must have their medication. And without insurance, it’s prohibitively expensive. You fully understand what losing your employer-sponsored health insurance can mean given the high cost of medical care and uncertainty about health insurance in the United States.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your departure, your ability to continue working in your profession could be at stake. Employers talk to each other, and even if you are the victim of illegal conduct, you could still get blackballed and find yourself forced to change careers.
Perhaps you are considering taking legal action, but you have so many questions. What will a lawsuit entail? Do I need to hire an attorney? How long will a lawsuit take? What kind of resolution can I expect? These and many other questions are bound to arise in a situation like yours. That’s where the DIY Self-Help Legal Leverage Program comes in.”
You might hope that this program will tell you exactly what your next move should be, but it probably won’t work out that way. Instead, this program will make sure that whatever decision you make is a fully informed one. It will help you overcome the uncertainty and allow you to choose your next steps with careful consideration.
Whether you walk into your boss’s office to negotiate your severance package, speak with a prospective attorney or meet with your employer’s attorney to discuss a potential settlement, having a general idea of how employment litigation works will allow you to critically analyze what’s going on.
If you choose not to sue your former employer because you decide it’s not worth the emotional and financial cost, that’s your decision to make and it may be the best one for you.
But maybe you don’t sue your employer because you never knew you had a case against them. Or perhaps you do end up suing your employer, but realize in the middle of the lawsuit that it isn’t worth the trouble.
These things are what the Spiggle Law Firm's DIY Self-Help Legal Leverage Program is designed to prevent.

You will also learn the nuts and bolts of the legal process and what factors seasoned employment lawyers think are important in winning a legal dispute. The program also gives you tips on where and how to find a top-notch employment lawyer if you decide to hire an attorney.
