Your Rights. Our Passion.

AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®

After several years representing clients in employment disputes, we started our firm in 2004 with a commitment to providing excellent legal representation and counseling to employees.  Whether you are a CEO or part-time employee trying to make ends meet, you have rights. We are dedicated to helping employees from all walks of life understand those rights and their options if their rights are violated.  Our focus is counseling our clients and giving sound practical advice on a wide range of questions from “do I have a case” to “is this severance fair” to “will I be able to collect unemployment benefits.”  More often than not, our cases settle and we are proud of the fact that over the years, we have collected tens of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.  When litigation is unavoidable, we take an aggressive but principled approach to representing our clients. We understand that you have not been through this before – but we have. With our experience and expertise, we can help find solutions that work for you.
