Employment Law

Our employment law attorneys represent employers and employees in a wide range of employment-related matters arising in the workplace, including, but not limited to, the preparation and review of Employee Handbooks, negotiation of Employment and Independent Contractor Agreements, and the resolution of matters such as wrongful termination and wage disputes.

Representing Employees

Understanding and obtaining your rights in the workplace can be challenging and intimidating. With counsel on staff and human resources teams on site, the legal resources available to employers often exceed those available to the individual employee. We understand the legal tactics used by small and large employers and are able to provide effective counsel to employees to help protect their rights.

Our firm is available to review your employment agreement, including assessing the terms of salary, commission, bonuses, non-solicitation covenants and non-compete agreements which may be included. If the terms of this agreement are unsuitable or inequitable, our employment law lawyers will assist you in the negotiations or even litigation to amend the terms of the contract.

If you have been wrongfully terminated or victimized by unlawful business practices, our team will work with you to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.  In addition to representing employees who have suffered from breach of contract claims, wrongful discharge and various employment torts, we have extensive experience in discrimination claims and negotiating severance packages.

Representing Employers

With increased federal and state employment regulations, it has become significantly more challenging to manage the workplace.  To avoid potentially costly mistakes, small and large companies should seek legal counsel when considering matters such as implementing personnel policy, preparing employment policies and manuals, drafting employee, independent contractor and noncompetition and nonsolicitation agreements, and terminating employees.  We are often retained to address these types of matters with employers to ensure strict compliance with the law.
