We Are Employment Lawyers
Our practice focuses exclusively on employment law on behalf of individuals and companies. We understand the complex legal and regulatory issues in the workplace and we use our extensive experience to get the best results for our clients. We have over 49 years of combined experience litigating virtually every type of employment, wage and hour and benefits case. We also have spent tens of thousands of hours counseling clients on day-to-day employment law issues.
We Put Our Client's Interests First And Give Each Client Personal Attention
While we love to litigate and try cases – and have success doing so – we put our client's interests first. Our objective is to achieve each client's goal, whether that is an early settlement before or during litigation, or a successful verdict or judgment. Every client is important to us. So, we give each client personal attention and treat that client like it is our only client. With us, you get the legal representation you deserve.
We Build Trusting and Long-Term Relationships
Clients trust us with their most important employment law matters and livelihood. As a result, we have built long-standing relationships with our clients – many of whom have worked with us for over 27 years. We are trusted advisors, and clients take comfort in knowing that we are on their side.
We Are Trial-Ready
From the inception of an engagement, we prepare each case for trial. And we have a record of trial success to show that our tireless preparation and strategic decisions produce results. This gives our clients the edge in settlement negotiations and litigation.
We Stand Out Among Our Peers
Our record of success in handling trials and appeals speaks for itself. Simply put, we strive to be the best and we see the big picture before others do.
