Unemployment Services for Hearings and Board Appeals has been referring unemployment appeal cases to professional unemployment appeal hearing representatives for  years, or since late 2009 when I opted to not collect benefits, so I could do this instead and not have a weekly benefit amount stand in the way of my own forward progess.

The best time to ask for a referral to a professional UI hearing representative, who I might add is competent to represent both claimants and employers, is before a first level  tribunal hearing and before the hearing is imminent .. meaning short notice isn't an ideal situation.

The reason why it's not ideal is because you and the hearing rep may have some serious prepping to do .. before the hearing, if winning is the name of the game .. and it is, for not just you, but many, many employers

Referrals, however, for me as a self employed non-attorney, are limited to the following states.  

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Mississippi
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Mexico
  • North Dakota
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • Washington State
  • Wyoming

If the state conducting your hearing isn't listed above, contact me and I'll tell you why.  I'm glad to be able to explain, and if possible, even offer an alternative. 

Or you can simply click here and read me rambling about twelve of the missing states, that require an attorney to represent you if charged a fee for representation. 

The remaining ten states generally speaking conduct their hearings in person.   But hey, if they scheduled your hearing to be held by phone, let me know and we can talk about finding you a hearing rep too. 

The case referral is free. 

However, after I refer your case to an independent Professional UI Hearing Reps, they will conduct a free case evaluation to determine if they can take your case, and if they can, how much the fee will be.

I can also refer appeal cases for a quality written argument for an Unemployment Insurance Board of Review.. if you've  lost your first level hearing.  

If you're interested in being represented at a hearing, you may be wondering about the average fee for representation. 

If that doesn't scare you off, please use the email form at the bottom of this page to get the referral ball rolling.

The Cost of Unemployment Appeal Hearing Representation 

Professional hearing representation if your case is accepted as viable for representation, it typically costs between $350 and $550, payable before services are rendered.

(The price range is also applicable, if you lost a lower level hearing and now need a written brief that supports why a state unemployment board of review should modify, reverse, or affirm a tribunal hearing decision.   Or why what happened before, or at the hearing should be enough to allow your case to bereopened back down at the tribunal appeal leve,l for an additional hearing, or a de novo (new hearing, just as if the first hearing you lost, never happened).

When you submit this  form you will be sent an automated email with my contact information, just in case you want to reach out to me, or have me help move the referral process along.
