        You spend more time working than doing just about anything else.  As our nation's work life has changed over the years, the laws governing employment have become more and more complicated.  Employers are controlled by many different statutes, regulations and court decisions.  Regrettably, employers often violate these laws.

       We handle a wide range of issues related to employment law.  These include Federal and State requirements pertaining to employment discrimination, sexual harassment, family and medical leave, wage and hour standards, the Occupational Safety & Health Act (OSHA), wrongful termination, non-compete agreements, trade secrets, invasion of privacy, defamation, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) and whistleblower claims.

        Each case requires independent judgment, but we take many employment claims on a contingency basis, which means that if we do not help you recover money from your employer, either by a judgment of the court or by settlement with the employer, you do not have to pay us attorney fees.

        We also represent officers, directors and senior members of management in complex federal and state labor and employment matters, in litigation and in connection with negotiations over hiring, compensation and severance issues.  Our firm also provides in-house training and consultation on employment law, especially in the areas of sexual harassment, family leave, disability accommodation and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
