Washington Employment Lawyers Association
The Washington Employment Lawyers Association (WELA) officially incorporated in 1996, but has been around informally since the 1980’s. The mission of this organization is to ensure labor laws are enforced so employees are treated with dignity and respect. The Washington Employment Lawyers Association maintains several committees, a membership directory, and is a member of the National Labor Relations board.
LegalMatch is a free online service that allows you to quickly and easily connect with qualified Washington attorneys. A valuable alternative to the referral services offered by bar associations, LegalMatch enables you to review in-depth profiles for multiple attorneys at a time. The attorney matching service provided by LegalMatch is applicable for all areas of the law. LegalMatch currently maintains an extensive database of attorneys located in Washington and across the United States.
The Washington Employment Lawyers Association provides many resources for its members including a database of experts, provides an amicus curiae committee, and allows members to create their own profiles. Other benefits of membership include access to CLE’s, social events, and access to Listserv that allows for almost instant feedback from members on employment law issues.
To become a WELA member you must be a licensed attorney whose practice is at least 75% related to employment. The annual dues are $100 for attorneys who have been licensed for less than five years and $200 for attorneys that have been licensed for more than five years.
