Woodland Hills 401k Information

401k Retirement Plan

Many employers contribute a certain percentage to an employee's contributions to a 401k retirement plan that is managed by a third party. The contributions are not taxed until they are distributed. Most employers have certain conditions and eligibility requirements in place for their plans.

Why a 401k Lawyer Is Important

Retirement plans are long term investments, but a person's situation can change when hardships, illness, or accidents intervene. You may need to take money out of your 401k plan which generally has punitive results such as fees. Before withdrawing money, consult with a Woodland Hills lawyer who handles 401k issues. You may be entitled to an exception to avoid the penalties.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with 401k Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
