There are many federal, state, city, and county laws that regulate employer conduct with employees. When an employer takes an adverse action against an employee, the first step is to identify the laws which may have been violated. The next step is to determine which strategy will help the employee receive compensation. You need a lawyer who will help you understand your rights, demand employers comply with the law, and make sure the employer pays you the damages you are owed for workplace violations.
When our team sits down with you, they identify the laws which may have been broken and figure out what legal avenues are available for your situation. Our dedication to protecting the rights of individual employees translates into close, personal attention to each client. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to legal disputes in the workplace.

Most employees can’t afford to pay a lawyer. That’s why Smith & Lo takes cases on a contingent fee basis. In a contingency fee arrangement, the lawyer agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the money awarded to the client. This means we only get paid if we win the case.
