We solve complex employment law problems that have the audacity to get in the way of your life or business.
EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION AND COUNSELING
Our employment litigation attorneys recognize the devastating impact that frayed or broken employment relationships have on businesses as well as upon the financial security, emotional well-being, and career trajectory of hard-working people. That’s why, no matter which side you are on of the employer/employee relationship, we craft individualized strategies that lead to prompt, favorable resolution of complicated employment disputes. If your matter cannot be expeditiously resolved and requires aggressive litigation and trial, we do that effectively too.
Suffering a job loss or other mistreatment at work in violation of federal, state, or local law is an emotionally grueling experience. But with Steve Harvey Law, you will find your voice, persevere, and achieve justice.
If you are an employer looking to avoid or mitigate your risks, strategically manage your employee relationships, ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, protect your work environment, brand, and reputation, and develop action plans that quell litigation and advance your interests, we excel at those goals too.
We handle a full range of employment litigation disputes for both employees and employers including:
- Age discrimination;
- Sex discrimination;
- Workplace defamation;
- Disability discrimination;
- Religious discrimination;
- Family and medical leave act;
- Reductions in force;
- Whistleblower claims;
- Wage and hour law violations.
Sensitive to the Needs of Employees
If you are a person entangled in a complex employment dispute, you may be experiencing a wide range of emotions ranging from anger, self-blame, fear, loss of control, vulnerability, and more. Be assured that while we are aggressive lawyers, we also will handle your case in a sensitive, discrete, and empathetic manner that respects your needs.
You provided valuable, high-quality services to your employer. We can help you achieve a just resolution that respects your outstanding contributions, honors your legal rights, and provides a path forward for professional growth, financial security, and peace of mind.
For our business clients, we understand that employment disputes pose a serious threat to your bottom line. That’s why, when possible, we work with you to pre-emptively avoid them. That said, when avoidance is not possible, we fully assess your options and aggressively protect your interests ― whether in settlement negotiations or before an administrative agency, court, arbitrator, or mediator. The continued success of your business is our prime goal. Clients value our cost-effectiveness.
Because we represent both employers and employees, we know how the other side thinks, and that knowledge gives us a powerful, competitive edge. Whether you are an employee or employer, you can count on us to efficiently resolve today’s problems while building solutions for a better tomorrow.
Alternative Fee Arrangements
Because we take the time to understand our clients, we are able to tailor our billing arrangements to suit their unique circumstances. We have the flexibility to offer alternative billing arrangements, hourly arrangements, and to take cases involving substantial damages on a contingency fee basis.
