The letter is the first step in the process.  One you have that, you can hire a lawyer to do more indepth discovery, such as issuing written questions and taking depositions of the people that you believe have the information you need.  Plus, the lawyer will be able to ask for documents to support you claim.  The employer will be required to answer the questions under oath and will be required to produce the documents.  To avoid producing documents and subjecting themselves to depositions, the employer may just settle the case.  You need to hire a lawyer to get involved if you want to have a chance of getting resolve.
