Areas We Practice

Disability Disputes

Our lawyers fight for reasonable workplace accommodations and fair compensation for employees that have been the victim of discrimination.

Sexual Harassment

Employers have a duty to prevent unlawful sexual harassment. Our lawyers seek to hold them accountable.

Family & Medical Leave

Employees often have a legal right to family, medical, or maternity leave. Our lawyers work to make sure those rights don't get ignored.


Employees have a right to be free from unlawful discrimination. But the law doesn't enforce itself. Our lawyers work to help.

Unpaid Wages

You have a job for one reason: to get paid. If your employer has failed to compensate you according to law, it may be time to contact us.

Wrongful Termination

When employers fire workers for unlawful reasons, the workers may be entitled to compensation. Speaking with a qualified attorney can be a good idea.
