Employment & Labor Advice & Litigation

Employers are subject to a wide array of state and federal laws and regulations, many of which are enforced by aggressive administrative agencies or by individual employees who pursue civil actions against their employers. Labor and employment law administrative charges and civil actions are among the most common in our justice system today. They are among the most complex, as well. Many carry the potential for significant penalties and civil liability, including costly punitive damages and attorney’s fees.

We have a proven track record of swift and efficient resolution of claims in state and federal courts.
