This includes developing employee handbooks and company policies, investigating claims of misconduct, offering advice on employee discipline or termination, representing clients at mediations and arbitrations and defending clients in the Federal and State courts.

Our lawyers have handled cases regarding a variety of statutes, including Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Equal Pay Act (EPA), 42 U.S.C. Section 1981 (1981 claims) and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.  So when our clients choose to litigate, they know their case is being defended by a seasoned, successful trial lawyer.
