SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION
Local 117 attorneys handle litigation, arbitration and unfair labor practice charges that arise in the context of your employment with a represented company.
Attorneys in the Legal Department do not and cannot represent members in their private legal matters. Local 117 attorneys do not, for example, provide counsel regarding family law, criminal law, or bankruptcy law unless a case is directly related to your workplace rights and your rights under your collective bargaining agreement.
We have, however, compiled a list of legal referrals for Local 117 members. In many cases, our referrals will provide discounted rates exclusively to members of the Union.
LIST OF REFERRALS
When you call an attorney on the list, be sure to mention that you are a member of Teamsters Local 117 and ask for the discounted rate. For more information, call Teamsters Local 117 at 206-441-4860.
