We Provide Consultation and Representation for Employers

Finding competent employment law counsel that advises and provides representation for employers can be challenging, especially if your business has already been accused of violating employment laws. Companies with experience working with employment law defense attorneys know that it is difficult to find counsel that knows their industry well and the employment laws that apply under various circumstances.

Knowledge and Experience

The continually expanding and complex body of federal, state, and local employment laws make it critical that your employment law attorneys have a breadth and depth of knowledge and experience in the practice of employment law. It is also essential that they keep current on changes in law.

Our employment law defense attorneys concentrate their practice in all areas of employment law defense. Our law firm has worked with employers of all sizes, from small start-up companies to Fortune 500 companies. We provide a full range of legal services from providing legal advice and counseling, to preparing and implementing policies and procedures, to representation for employers in employment law litigation.

We have counsel employers on everything from the ADA compliance to wage and hour laws and compliance. What sets our firm apart from other employment law firms is our extensive experience representing employers and employees. Having approached countless employment law issues from different angles, our employment law attorneys bring experience and understanding that is hard to match in the courtroom.

Practical and Efficient Consultation and Representation for Employers

We understand that workplace legal issues rarely have a one-size-fits-all solution and the win-at-all-costs does not provide for the best defense strategy. Our clients rely on our employment law defense attorneys for information, guidance, and risk assessment. We tell our clients what they need to know, not what they want to hear. The goal is to work closely with our clients to develop strategies and solutions that comply with the law, minimizing disruption to the business while controlling costs.
