You can tell a lot about someone by who they root for, what they stand for, and what they do when faced with adversity. We have dedicated our careers to protecting the rights of workers. We don’t represent ideas or constructs like companies; instead, we represent people like you – people who work for a living. While most of us in the workplace can be fired at will, employees still have certain legal rights. You have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination and harassment. Your employer must provide reasonable accommodations for your medical conditions and religious obligations. If you or a family member are seriously ill, you have the right to a leave of absence from work and the right to return to work after that leave ends. Employers must pay you minimum wage, overtime pay, and prevailing wages on public construction projects and cannot steal your tips. Employees have the right to blow the whistle on potential violations of law or public policy without fear of retaliation. If you are fortunate enough to have an employment contract, your employer must honor that agreement.
People take pride in their work and need their jobs. Our self-esteem and our very identities are often deeply tied to what we do for a living. When your employer attacks your livelihood, more than just your income is at stake. The physical health and emotional well-being of you and your family are at risk. We understand that and fight to make adversaries, judges, and juries understand it too.
Throughout our careers, we have worked hard to expand and protect employee rights by lobbying legislators, writing friend-of-the-court briefs to judges, and fighting hard for our clients every day both in and out of the courtroom. Whether you seek us out to review the terms of an agreement for you, negotiate the resolution of your claims against your employer, or file a lawsuit for you, we put our big-firm credentials, small-firm attention, hard-earned professional reputation, and street-fighting toughness to work for you. Don’t take our word for it, though; look through our website and see what we are doing, what we have done, and what our clients say about us.
