Areas of Practice / Employment Law

Our employment lawyers strive to provide effective representation of employers and employees through litigation, as well as practical advice on complying with ever-changing workplace rules.

Our lawyers have extensive courtroom experience in employment matters. We have represented clients in state and federal courts regarding a variety of claims, including discrimination, sexual harassment, breach of contract, workplace torts, the Family Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, wage claims, wrongful termination, trade secrets, and non-competition agreements. We assist clients in determining the appropriateness of mediation, arbitration, and other alternatives to court in order to resolve the dispute as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We believe that a case should go to court only when necessary.

Our employment lawyers are committed to preventative law, reducing the risks associated with litigation. As counselors, we prepare and review, among other things, personnel policies and procedures, employment agreements, and non-competition agreements. We advise our clients through potentially difficult employment situations such as hirings, terminations, workplace violence and personnel accommodations.

Whether before or after a workplace issue arises, our attorneys work with our clients to achieve practical and effective results.
