Employment & Labor Law


Our labor and employment law defense attorneys work toward achieving a successful resolution of any claims before a lawsuit is filed or prior to trial. If trial is necessary, their experience includes successful jury trial verdicts against the most experienced employment plaintiff attorneys.

Complaints of discrimination, harassment, retaliatory discharge, and wage and hour violations against employers are on the rise. Regardless of efforts to prevent such employee actions, most employers face allegations at some point. Employers need seasoned defense attorneys to protect their companies from these issues with minimal impact on their business. Our Labor Law Defense Group understands the outcome of a discrimination claim can substantially affect the employer’s business and will diligently work toward a resolution quickly and efficiently.
