Our employment law team has a reputation for aggressively defending suits alleging sexual harassment, wrongful discharge, age, race, religion and sexual discrimination.

Our employment law team strives to help businesses avoid litigation with a proactive approach and strategic planning. When a lawsuit is filed our attorneys conduct an investigation and analysis of the claim in order to effectively counsel our clients on a proper response. Our attorneys have vast experience with alternative dispute resolution strategies such as mediation and arbitration. As aggressive litigators we also recognize that in some matters the best resolution is proceeding to trial. As a result, we have tried and obtained favorable verdicts for our clients in a variety of employment litigation matters.

Our attorneys employ a cost effective and strategic defense for your special circumstances both before and after a lawsuit is filed. Over the years, our employment attorneys have assisted employers in drafting and revising employee handbooks, personnel policies, non-competition agreements, non-solicitation agreements and employment service contracts. Our goal is to educate our clients to ensure that personnel decisions comply with the applicable law and that hiring and firing decisions are handled appropriately by informed and knowledgeable members of your business. One method we use to accomplish this goal is to provide risk management seminars to inform and ultimately protect our clients. Additionally, we work diligently to keep our clients up to date on the latest developments in the diverse areas of employment law.

We understand that businesses need to run effectively and we strive to eliminate the undue burden that employment litigation can place upon businesses, both large and small.
