How is this an EEOC issue? Are you being discriminated against? If it is an EEOC issue, then you need to go directly to the EEOC and file a complaint and they will review your claim. Once they review it, then they will either agree to file a claim on your behalf against your employer or they will issue a "right to sue" letter for you to file your own claim (and they will likely have a list of employment attorneys).

No employment attorney will take on an EEOC issue without a "right to sue" letter that comes from the EEOC.

If it's a pension issue, then it sounds to me more like an ERISA issue (Employment Retirement Insome Security Act) and you really need just a good employment attorney that specializes in benefits and specifically, retirement.

The other distinction in your attorney selection is finding one that is a rep for the employee and not the employer. However, there are entire firms dedicated to certain disciplines and they will be more than happy to go up against anyone - esp. a large company.... because a large company (especially a publicly traded one) will be more apt to settle a claim just to keep their name out of the news and keep their stock from going down.

And if its the rest of your life and it's that important - it might be worth shelling out a few hundred bucks for the consult with a good attorney vs. letting someone half-*** it on contingency for you.

Good luck
