We are passionate, relentless employment lawyers who fight for employee rights. When an employer violates your rights, we level the playing field and help you to take back your power.

You have the right to equal treatment under the law, to be paid properly, to have meal and rest breaks, to take pregnancy or disability leave, to care for your family, and to have the opportunity to return to work. You have the right to have your disability or medical condition accommodated if that means you can perform your job’s functions. You have the right NOT to be discriminated against or harassed because of who you are. You also have the right not to be retaliated against for pointing out violations of the law or asserting your rights under the law.

We are employment lawyers who understand how important your job is to you and to your family’s well-being. That is why our first priority is to do what it takes to help you. First, we work to save your job and resolve the dispute. When that’s not possible, we negotiate a severance agreement. If that cannot be accomplished, we file your case. We fight for the evidence that proves your case, then show the jury how the employer broke the rules, betrayed you and how deeply you were harmed.

We believe in the words written by this country’s founders: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all [people] are created equal, that they are endowed [with] certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

We represent you – the people – because we know that those who seem least powerful need a warrior and that those who abuse others need to learn the lesson of accountability provided by our justice system.
