We routinely take matters on contingency. We only get paid when you get paid.
Harassment and Discrimination
Harassment, often but not always based on sex, arises when an employee is subject to a hostile work environment because of his membership in a protected category like sex, age, or disability. Discrimination occurs when an employee is treated unfairly because of that employee’s gender, race, sexual orientation, or other protected category.
Retaliation occurs when an employee has made a protected disclosure or engages in some form of protected activity and consequently experiences negative repercussions in his workplace. Examples of protected disclosures or activities include complaining about illegal activity by the employer or testifying in a coworker’s allegation of discrimination.
Wage and Hour Litigation
Wage-and-hour claims result when employers violate minimum wage laws or fail to compensate employees for legitimate and documented overtime work. Claims for unpaid wages typically result in recovery of the lost wages along with statutory penalties.
Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is termininated in violation of a specific public policy. Public policies are found in laws and statutes. For example there is a public policy against discrimination in employment on the basis of a the employee being in a protected category. Violation of this policy may give rise to a wrongful termination claim.

We always pride ourselves on spending the time to explain the risks and benefits of various courses of action and being available to discuss the issues that inevitably arise in the course of a legal dispute.
