Employment Law

Protecting clients against unlawful discrimination.

Your career and your employment are more than how you earn a living; they are the result of hard work, dedication, the relentless development of your skills and talents, and are a part of your identity.

So when you are wrongly terminated, harassed, discriminated or retaliated against at work, or if you are being terminated and asked to sign a severance agreement, it is of the utmost importance that you act decisively and select the best available legal counsel. Too often, executives and employees fail to understand how much is inherently at stake in an employment law matter.

Some common reasons employees might want to talk with an attorney:

  • EReviewing and evaluating a severance agreement
  • EReviewing an employment contract or no-compete
  • EBeing fired for an unlawful reason
  • EFeeling forced to quit for an unlawful reason
  • EExperiencing harassment or retaliation while working
  • EBeing discriminated against by bosses or co-workers on the basis of race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, age, gender, pregnancy, or another legally protected status
  • EBeing deprived of legally mandated pay, such as minimum wage or overtime
  • EYour employer not paying your commissions
  • EReviewing your employment contract, non-compete agreement, or severance agreement
