Nearly A Century Of Combined Experience Efficient and Effective Strategies to Resolve Transactional Matters and Legal Disputes

Lawyers For Wrongful Termination Of Employment

While an inevitable part of any workplace, the end of an employment relationship is seldom objectively easy. When allegations of illegal motive surface, the impact on both sides can be significant and long-lasting.

Ensuring fair treatment during the legal process is vital, whether you are an employee who suspects you may have been wrongfully terminated or you are an employer who has been accused of illegally firing a worker. The process of resolving these disputes can be bruising, which is why having a lawyer who knows how to effectively resolve employment-related disputes with minimal disruption to a client is so important. At our firm, our attorneys balance aggressive litigation strategies with a commitment to making any employment litigation matter easier on our clients at every stage of the process.

There are advantages to hiring a firm that has experience representing both sides of employment claims. Our attorneys truly understand common disputes from both sides of a case, and can use this understanding to give you the upper hand in negotiations, administrative proceedings or at trial, since we can plan for how the other side is likely to look at the facts and form its arguments.

We Offer Legal Help Designed To Get Results, Not Drag You Through The Legal System

Whether you're an employer or an employee, one thing is certain: You do not want to have to endure a lengthy legal battle.

While our attorneys have significant litigation experience, in many wrongful termination cases we can arrive at a positive outcome through direct negotiations, mediation or resolution through the EEOC claims process. Our firm handles cases arising out of claims of wrongful termination on the basis of:

  • Discrimination
  • Whistleblowing
  • Harassment
