Picture

Litigation
For those employees who have been victims of serious violations of the law we are prepared to litigate robustly.

For employers who have been victimized by meritless claims we work to find practical solutions and reduce the costs of litigation.

For private employees and employers, we have extensive experience litigating on behalf of both individuals and employers in state and federal courts regarding nearly all aspects of employment from the beginning to the end of the employment relationship and beyond, such as applicants, employment contracts, handbooks, on-the-job harassment, compensation, medical leave, medical inquiries, overtime, safety, promotion, demotion, discharge, severance pay, off-duty activities, electronic and telephonic monitoring, polygraph testing, and benefits.

For federal, state and local government employees, we have broad administrative and litigation experience pertaining to all aspects of public sector employment – applicants, on-the-job harassment, compensation, medical leave, medical inquiries, overtime, safety, promotion, demotion, discipline, discharge, severance pay, off-duty activities, benefits and Constitutional rights.

Advice
For employees with questions about working conditions we provide practical advice. Some employees are relieved to learn that their unfortunate, and sometimes  unfair, employment experience should be put behind them and that they should avoid a lawsuit.

For employers, our insights into how to make difficult personnel decisions in a way that reduces stress and the chances of expensive litigation have proven to be effective, based on our litigation for and consultation with thousands of individuals over 30 years. Our vast experience representing individuals brings a valuable insight into preventive  litigation strategies. We also help employers draft legal and protective personnel policies, non-compete agreements, and other documents and agreements.

For those employees where litigation and/or negotiation and settlement are worthwhile we provide effective representation.  Representing employers has made us more realistic in pursuit of and evaluating meritorious cases.
