Our firm specializes in employment law. We compiled the absolute best and most valuable content from our experienced lawyers to break down this process for you.
Are you sitting on a winning lottery ticket? Step One, by reviewing what your case might be worth, helps answer that question. Attorneys call this “damages." There are four categories of damages: lost wages, emotional distress, consequential damages, and punitive damages. You will explore those for your case in this step.
Get your law degree here! Well, not quite. But Step Two will teach you basic employment law. It also provides you toward the rich resources available to you online if you know where to look. And you will, after watching Step 2. To top it off, Step 2 helps you analyze whether or not your employer broke the law. 
There is money at stake your employer has broken the law, but can you prove it in court. Step Three can help you think like a trial lawyer by teaching you about the categories of evidence common in most employment cases.  
Tom Spiggle, Partner, The Spiggle Law Firm
Tom founded Spiggle Law to help individuals facing difficult workplace issues. Although Spiggle Law represents employees in many different matters, Tom has a soft spot for those who suffer from discrimination solely because they are pregnant or have family-care issues, like caring for a sick child or an elderly parent. As a former prosecutor with significant experience in high-level criminal cases, Tom is also uniquely qualified to represent individuals subject to workplace investigations and criminal prosecutions.

Prior to joining Spiggle Law Firm, Phillis worked in litigation departments at law firms in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Maryland. She has practiced in several areas of law, including commercial litigation, employment litigation, professional liability, insurance defense, and personal injury.

Clients say that Phillis is responsive to their needs and speaks in a language that they understand. Phillis describes herself as being a very assertive, even an aggressive attorney at times. However, as a native of Tennessee, she insists that she always retains her Southern charm.

Are you ready to leverage yourself?

After 10 years on the job, you get called into human resources. 


You're fired.

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...

Imagine This

The DIY 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 help you decide if you have a case. It helps you decide what to do next.

These are just some of the whirlwind of questions going through your head right now. But first, you go into survival mode and consider what losing your job means for you financially.

How will you and your family handle your loss of income? 

If you were the primary breadwinner, there could be serious trouble on the horizon. 

  • How will the bills be paid? 
  • Will you lose your home? 
  • How much will your lifestyle change? 

Depending on the terms of your severance offer, you could soon go deep into debt, consider bankruptcy or even face foreclosure on your home.

What about benefits?

Maybe your loss of income will be manageable, but what about benefits? Your entire family received health insurance through your employer. You have a family member with a preexisting medical condition – they absolutely must have their medication. 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.

...Is this enough?

Is this legal? What do I do now?

And what about your professional future? 

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.

Taking action

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 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.

Those things are what the DIY Legal Leverage Program is designed to prevent.

What do veteran employment lawyers know that you don’t? How to identify a bullseye for a case. After Step Four, you’ll know that too, because you’ll know the two components needed to calculate “your number” - the sweet-spot monetary value for your case. Your number guides potential settlement negotiations and anchors your strategy as your case moves through the lawsuit process.
Step Five teaches you how the sausage gets made. It ain’t pretty, but learning about the guts of a case can help you get the most out of yours. This Step provides a general timeline and roadmap of the litigation process.  This will help you make an informed decision about your overall lawsuit strategy.
Lawsuits are all about the money, except when they’re not. Step Six identifies the non-monetary aspects of a settlement agreement which are very important, yet often overlooked. For instance, what should you know about “gag orders” common in settlement agreements? After completing Step 6, you can evaluate your settlement prospects with eyes wide open.


When can bringing in a hired gun, aka, your lawyer help? When can it hurt? Step Seven teaches you the pros and cons of hiring an attorney - and things that your average phone book lawyer might not tell you. This Step also gives you the inside baseball scoop on how to hire an attorney should you decide to go that route.
