When the State of Nevada makes a decision about an application for unemployment benefits, either the employee or employer can file an appeal to reconsider the decision. Protecting your right to receive unemployment benefits can be a stressful and complex process, so we’ve created an online video series that covers the process from beginning to end.
The videos include many tips based on our experience that can help you avoid serious mistakes and have a better chance of winning your appeal. For instance, we discuss how to prepare and submit evidence properly, how to give effective testimony, and how to deal with a difficult referee or employer.
We recommend that you watch our videos in the following situations: (1) if you plan to represent yourself at an appeal hearing (U/I or PUA); (2) if you want to learn about the process to help you decide whether to hire an attorney; (3) if you have an attorney and want to be fully prepared for your hearing.
The price for representation at an appeal hearing typically ends up being from $800-$1,200, so the video series is a great option if you want tips and information but can’t afford to hire us for your hearing. If we do a consultation, we only have time to cover a small portion of the information in the videos, so we recommend watching the videos whether or not we do a consultation or represent you.

How Else Can We Help?
We offer experienced representation in unemployment appeals for both regular unemployment (U/I) and for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
We can assist you with your unemployment appeal at any level (Referee, Board of Review, District Court).
If we represent you at the Referee level, we will review your case, submit any evidence you have, and represent you at the hearing by asking questions (including cross-examination), presenting evidence, and making a closing argument. We charge from $175/hr to $250/hr for representation at the first appeal level. You must pay a retainer up front.
At the Board of Review level, we will review your case and submit a written appeal letter that makes arguments based on the facts of your case and the law to try to convince the Board to reverse the Referee’s decision. We charge from $175/hr to $250/hr to draft an appeal to the Board. You must pay a retainer up front.
At the District Court level, we will file legal briefs with the Court and, if needed, argue on your behalf at a hearing with the Court. We will also serve documents on the other parties and file any needed follow-up briefs. We charge from $175/hr to $250/hr to represent claimants with the Court. You must pay a retainer up front.
