"That some of our best cases have come to us as referrals from other law firms is a testament to our abilities and the high regard in which we are held by other lawyers."
Excellent Reputation

Based on our past results, our opponents know we're not scared of the courtroom. In fact, we prepare every case as if it's going to trial in order to have the strongest outcome.

Unparalleled Experienced

With more than 80 combined years of experience working on both sides of the courtroom, you can trust we've dealt with situations similar to yours before. 

Professionally Focused

Our legal strategies are based on fact - not emotion - building a strong case to protect the rights of workers who have been wronged by their employers.

A Straightforward, Honest Approach

When clients discuss their legal concerns with us, they know that they will receive a straightforward, frank and honest assessment of the legal issues their case presents. We will also discuss possible legal strategies and your prospects for success.

We do not hesitate to take a case to trial. We pursue your claims aggressively from the very beginning, fighting for your rights in an efficient and effective manner. Our mission is to achieve our client's goals — as quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

We take most of our cases on a contingency basis. This means that you only owe a fee when we recover for you. In some instances, the opposing party may even have to pay your attorney fees when we win your case.
