Between us, we have practiced employment law for more than 65 years. Throughout our careers, we have also handled discrimination claims against educational institutions, businesses, and non-profits. We offer our clients the benefit of our considerable knowledge of the law and experience in interpreting and applying the legislation, regulations, and case law that impact the employer-employee relationship and apply to discrimination claims. We stay up to date on changes in the law so that our clients don't have to. We also offer clients our perspective on how employment and discrimination issues are best handled. We believe in thoughtful employment policies that are consistently implemented and frequently updated. We are fans of "preventive maintenance," believing that it helps avoid employment disputes and minimizes the risk of discrimination claims. When disputes occur, we look for opportunities for early, cost-effective resolution. When resolution isn't appropriate, we are zealous advocates for our clients. We believe, however, that zealous advocacy can be pursued with civility. We endeavor to treat our adversaries, judges, administrative agencies, and all participants in the legal process with respect.
