Discrimination & Harassment
Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and respectfully. If you've been a victim of unlawful discrimination or harassment—be it at work, school, or a public place—our skilled attorneys will fight fiercely for your rights. We handle discrimination and harassment cases involving race, sex, age, disability, LGBTQ+ rights, and more.
We firmly defend every individual's fundamental rights and freedoms. Our civil rights practice covers cases involving abuses or violations of your rights under the Constitution and federal and state laws. Whether you have suffered from discrimination, police misconduct, or some other form of unfair treatment, we can be your steadfast advocates, seeking justice and fair treatment for you.
We understand the importance of fair treatment in the workplace. We advocate for employees who have been treated unjustly and strive to uphold your rights. Our team handles all workers’ rights-related matters, from discrimination and to FMLA violations to wage theft and more. We also handle contract and severance negotiations for workers.
Unpaid Wages & Overtime
If you've been denied rightful wages or overtime pay, our legal team is here to help. We prosecute wage and hour violations, and we are committed to ensuring employers and entities are held accountable for their violations of workers’ rights.
Professional Licensing & Malpractice
We represent professionals facing disciplinary actions or licensing issues, including doctors, nurses, lawyers, and other professionals. Additionally, we prosecute malpractice claims against professionals who have failed to meet the standard of care in their services.
Our firm has a strong track record in representing groups adversely affected by illegal practices. We are established leaders with proven experience in prosecuting and settling class and collective actions for workers and other plaintiffs.
We work to ensure that no employer or entity exploits you illegally through unfair compensation, unjust hiring or firing practices, unequal job opportunities, or other infringements on your right to fair treatment. Our services for class actions are offered on a contingent fee basis, which means we are paid solely from the recovery we secure for you; you owe us nothing upfront.
We have engaged in litigation against some of the country's largest employers, spanning industries such as agriculture, technology, healthcare, retail, and government entities. Class and collective actions provide a platform for you and your colleagues to jointly pursue justice, enabling a more efficient fight against injustices with the power of collective action against corporate misconduct.
Our attorneys are well-versed in labor law and have represented numerous labor unions in arbitrations, negotiations, contract disputes, unfair labor practices, court cases, and other related issues. We are devoted to protecting the fundamental right of workers to unionize and work together for fair pay and treatments.
