Why you need a lawyer

You might think you can handle your complaint against your employer on your own. But the reality is your company will likely have an entire team of attorneys defending its best interests. And even if they seem cooperative, they're likely doing everything they can to make sure they win their case, even if that means paying you less or terminating your employment altogether.

We realize how high the stakes are in such cases. That's why we want to meet with you as soon as possible to discuss the details of your case. We're familiar with all the state and federal labor laws that apply to such cases, from the FMLA to rules and regulations involving right-to-work and at-will employment.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may deal directly with your employer on your behalf, or we may file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor or another appropriate state or federal agency. We may also file a lawsuit on your behalf against your company if we believe that's the best approach for resolving your case.

Many options exist. And we can explore all of them with you. Find out how we can help you. Schedule your free consultation with us today.
