Joe was on site at his latest construction project. As a welder, Joe was on the site a lot, and he often got to know many members of the work crew from all the different areas. One day, at lunch, he ran into a group of acquaintances on who were discussing overtime pay. He overheard them talking about how they were being shortchanged for various reasons, and they were preparing to hire an overtime lawyer to help them get compensated for what they were owed. Joe was not one to barge into a conversation, but this was something important to him, and he wanted to know more.
It turns out his coworkers were right, and he was owed a few thousand dollars in overtime pay! Joe might not have ever discovered this had it not been for the conversation he ran into, and, more importantly, without the guidance and legal support of a well-qualified overtime lawyer. He found out how to approach the matter, and when his employers were not cooperative, he was able to take the right legal measures to fight for what he deserved.
