Who We Are

Our Exclusive Focus

Established in 1990, we are a team of experienced employment lawyers and legal administrative professionals providing expert legal services on a full range of workplace issues to employees, business owners, corporate counsel and human resource departments across a variety of industries. Our specialized knowledge of the laws governing employment relationships, experience in dispute resolution and mediation, allow us to bring a unique and valuable perspective to the table. With over 30 years of providing workplace related legal services to thousands of clients, we have gained a thorough understanding of the underlying motivations, thought patterns, aims and strategies often at play in employment law matters.

Avoiding and minimizing the effects of litigation is of utmost importance in the management of a successful workplace.
