When you have labor and employment needs, you deserve a firm that listens to you, understands your business and has the proven ability to efficiently and timely manage your legal concerns. We are dedicated to the practice of labor and employment, and pride ourselves on our ability to assist you in navigating the ever-changing employment law landscape.

Loyal Counselors

We enjoy working with our clients to ensure their compliance with employment-related laws and regulations such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, Equal Pay Act of 1963, Work Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988, the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as state fair employment practice acts. We conduct human resource audits and train our clients’ supervisors and managers on workplace harassment prevention, FMLA management and drug-free workplace policies and procedures, among others.

Effective and Efficient Advocates

When you are facing litigation, we provide appropriate staffing, prompt evaluation of the case and cost-effective representation. We first seek to understand our clients’ goals, and then leverage our experience in state and federal courts to defend against wrongful discharge claims, various employment-related tort actions, and state and federal claims of unlawful discrimination. We also represent our clients before governmental bodies charged with the enforcement of employment statutes and policies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Our experience, reputation and cost-effective representation of our clients’ employment matters is deeply rooted in the experience our attorneys have in managing legal budgets in their former capacity as in-house counsel. Whether aiding in-house counsel or acting in the capacity of general counsel for a company or public agency, our attorneys have the experience, temperament and training to advise large employers, small business owners and public agencies in all aspects of employment and labor law.

When it comes to your organization’s most valuable asset – your employees – our employment attorneys are committed to counseling with and advocating for you every step of the way.
