We are experienced, aggressive advocates for each and every one of our clients.
An Understanding Of The Complex Nature Of Employment Disputes
A dispute between an employee and his or her employer puts the employee in a very difficult situation. You depend on your employer for a regular paycheck that supports you and your loved ones. You have relationships with coworkers, and may derive satisfaction from performing your job with skill and professionalism. You commit many of your waking hours to working on your employer's behalf and have a personal investment in your job.
In many cases, you want to maintain an ongoing, friendly relationship with the employer despite the employer's improper conduct. "Rocking the boat" by standing up for yourself can cause ripples that affect your career now and in the future in ways you may not foresee. In a difficult economic climate, employees sometimes opt not to assert their rights for fear of losing their jobs under the pretext of layoffs or cutbacks.
Defending your rights as an employee can appear to be long odds against the substantial resources of your employer. Therefore, it is essential to have an experienced, trustworthy advocate on your side.
