Employment Law

We have taken on large corporations, as well as smaller local employers, in the pursuit to protect the employee from deprivation of basic rights at the workplace. Our firm litigates employment discrimination suits on behalf of victimized employees before the state and federal agencies and in the state and federal courts.

If you are an employee, it is your responsibility to find out whether your employer is treating you fairly or legally. You may be concerned about workplace discrimination or you may have questions about fair pay, a non-compete clause in your contract or a wrongful termination. In all of these cases, the law outlines your rights and provides protection. Please call us with your concerns.

If you feel you have already been mistreated because of your individual characteristics, such as age, disability, race, sex/gender, sexual orientation, prior complaints of discrimination, refusal to be abused at work, and many more, please call us immediately to discuss your options. The law provides strict time limitations and conditions to recover damages. You must act quickly and decisively. It can be reassuring to know that you have qualified counsel on your side to level the battle field.
