Engage All Parties on Your Behalf
As your attorneys, we represent you through the case. Legal representation prevents you from incriminating yourself, as we communicate with all parties on your behalf. We speak with lawyers, witnesses, judges, and your employer so that you do not have to.
Negotiate a Settlement with Your Employer
We can assess what your case is worth based on the sum of your losses. Afterward, we can meet with your employer to establish the facts of the case, outline your damages and negotiate a fair and just settlement.
File a Lawsuit
Most employment law cases are civil cases. As such, we can settle them out of court. However, if we cannot reach a settlement with your employer or their insurance company, we may explore the options of filing a lawsuit and taking your case to court. We offer comprehensive legal services for your case. We can handle every aspect of your case from start to finish so that you do not bear the emotional weight and stress of your claim alone.

What Damages Are Available in an Employment Law Case?
Damages in an employment law case typically fall into two categories: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages are actual monetary damages - how did unfair actions cost you financially? Noneconomic damages may include ways in which discrimination or harassment harmed your well-being. Compensatory damages you may be able to claim include:
- Lost wages, bonuses, or tips
- Lost future employment opportunities
- Job search expenses
- Emotional or mental trauma
- Personal inconveniences
- Loss of standard of living or joy of life
There is also a third type of damages known as punitive damages. If our law firm can establish that the employer or a coworker intended to harm you or our career, the judge may award punitive damages in addition to your compensatory damages. As your attorneys, our goal is to help you get the maximum compensation possible for your damages based on the sum of your losses.
