I signed a severance agreement for 4 weeks pay (about $5,000 I think) that I can retract in 7 days. An attorney told me that I could retract and have her office draft a letter demanding a better severance. She says fees would $1,500 for this. He says the company will probably not take the original severance offer off the table if they refuse the suggestion of the letter. Would they do that after I retract my acceptance though? I am afraid they would dare me to sue them by refusing despite the letter and hold me to my retraction. Then I would get nothing and walk away or sped even more legal fees to sue - if I could afford to do that.
