The Law Office of Cyrus Mor provides residents of Los Angeles County with experienced representation for EDD appeal hearings. At our firm, our Los Angeles EDD attorney has over a decade of experience assisting our clients with EDD unemployment benefits claims and appeals.
If you are a resident of Los Angeles County, your EDD appeal hearing will be handled by one of the below appeal offices:
Once you file your unemployment claim with the EDD, you will eventually receive a phone interview where you will be asked questions about your most recent work separation. If the EDD interviewer elects to deny your claim, a denial letter and appeal form will be sent to you in the mail. It is important to contact our Los Angeles EDD lawyer before you submit your appeal form.
When you contact our office, we will provide you with instructions on how to properly fill out the EDD appeal form. We will also listen to your story and have a conversation with you about the facts related to your termination or resignation. You will then be provided with detailed feedback about your likelihood of success and whether we will be able to represent you at your appeal hearing.
If you already filed your EDD appeal in Los Angeles, contact us once you receive your Notice of Hearing. Your hearing notice will provide you with important information about your upcoming hearing including a list of the issues that will be discussed at your hearing.
There are several issues the EDD can flag to address at your hearing. With respect to representation from our office, our services are exclusively limited to EDD appeals based on California Unemployment Insurance Code Sections 1256 or 1257(a). Respectively, these issues are directly related to work separation and the reason provided by you to the EDD concerning your separation.
If your Los Angeles EDD claim was in fact denied based on your prior work separation, then your prior employer will likely be provided with the opportunity to testify at your appeal hearing. If your prior employer has been notified to participate, you will see their name listed at the top of your Notice of Hearing either underneath or above your name, depending on which party filed the appeal.
The EDD appeal process can be difficult to navigate on your own, especially if you were terminated by your prior employer or were forced to resign from the position. Typically, if the employers do elect to participate in the hearing, they will appear with your prior supervisor and/or human resources personnel. Depending on the nature of the facts, some employers will also bring a few of your prior coworkers to act as witnesses and testify against you.
Employers are usually experienced in the hearing process and know what to expect. Our Los Angeles EDD appeal attorney will help you navigate the process and will work directly with you on educating you fully about EDD appeals. Preparation is key to success in the world of EDD appeal hearings, and we care about our results as much as our clients do.
We carefully evaluate each of our potential EDD client's facts for unemployment benefits eligibility before offering our appeal services. Please don't hesitate to reach out and tell us your story so we can tell you what to expect and let you know whether we can help. We understand the EDD appeal process is generally frustrating, but once we explain the dynamic to you and run you through the preparation process, you will be feeling much more confident about how to proceed.
