Our team of experienced attorneys will review the details of your case, provide you with an informed legal opinion and develop a step-by-step plan for the best outcome.
Our goal is to avoid stress for you. We start by negotiating with the employer by pointing out the problems with how the situation was handled and obtaining a background of your good character.

Federal and state laws guarantee certain rights for American citizens, including the right to obtaining employment, housing and education without facing discrimination. When a landlord or employer discriminates against someone based on his or her protected identity, it may be possible to pursue legal action.
Discrimination in the workplace manifests as unequal treatment between employees based on specific characteristics. The Civil Rights Act protects employees from harassment, being denied a job or receiving lower wages based on their gender identity, race, sexual orientation, age and more.
Employment agreements are contracts detailing what is expected of the employer and the employee, often restricting what employees can do. Severance agreements, by contrast, document the fact that the employee, at termination, agrees not to sue the employer in exchange for special compensation and other benefits.
If you were a victim of a workplace violation, you may be facing wage & hour issues, denied benefits, unsafe working conditions and more. Our attorneys represent individuals, never companies, in employment & labor cases, and use our knowledge to help you seek your entitled compensation.
While it is legal for an employer to terminate an at-will employment at any time, anti-discrimination laws prohibit termination on the basis of a protected identity such as gender, race and disability, or in retaliation for speaking up about workplace harassment.
