|Areas of Practice|
Our employment law attorneys are both counselors and litigators. What that means is that we devote substantial time and resources staying abreast of new developments in the law so that we can answer your questions and alert you to changes that affect your business or your case. What it also means is that we are trial attorneys and can represent your interests for the entire life-cycle of a problem, from the first inkling that there is an issue through a jury trial and appeal, should those procedures be necessary.
What we know about trials and appeals informs everything we do. We know, for instance, that those things are expensive and extremely disruptive and thus our objective is always to keep a sticky situation from becoming a litigation. We also know that everything that you do in the early moments of a developing problem can affect your chances of winning at trial or settling favorably because those actions and the documents that describe them – e-mails, memoranda, correspondence with the government – constitute the evidence on which trials are based. The earlier you call the better we can serve you.
We have substantial experience in most areas of employment law, except workers compensation, employee benefits and immigration. We are particularly experienced in resolving complex problems arising out of the duty to accommodate disabilities, the litigation of matters arising under state and federal anti-discrimination, anti-retaliation and anti-harassment statutes, wage and hour problems and contract disputes. We draft and review employment contracts, severance agreements and employee handbooks. We provide employment law compliance training in all of the areas in which we practice.
