Do you have an employment dispute that requires litigation? Our firm prides itself on its reputation to competently litigate cases for employers and employees in matters of labor and employment law. We provide representation in cases of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, non-compete, wrongful termination, employment contracts, whistleblower, and more.
We Provide Counseling
Regardless of your situation, a consultation is the first step in any employment dispute. This is your time. During your consultation, you can get legal advice from attorneys experienced in employment law regarding your questions about your rights and responsibilities in the workplace. Not every case requires litigation, and many times, a client may get the answers to his or her questions and concerns during a single consultation, without need for further representation. A consultation allows you to arm yourself with the knowledge of your rights under Florida and federal law in the workplace.
Why are we focused solely on employment law? We believe that there should be justice, respect, and equality in the workplace. No matter who you are, no matter your position, we are here to defend your rights. By focusing our professional efforts in employment and labor law, we have been able to explore more facets of this area of law and to reach a level of experience that we could not have reached had our attention been divided. As a result, we are one of the most reputable employment law firms in the country, with some nationally recognized cases. Read about our past cases here.
We are also here to educate. Whether you are an employee or an employer, you may have obligations and responsibilities in the workplace, in addition to certain rights. Many of our clients do not know their obligations, but we are here to help. The more you know, the better you can stand up for yourself.
