Overview

My name is Sidd Rao and I am a trial lawyer with a practice focused on unlawful workplace discrimination and retaliation, sexual harassment, employee rights under the Family Medical Leave Act, whistleblower's rights, failures to hire or promote, claims for unpaid wages, including exempt/non-exempt misclassifications, overtime, and minimum wage litigation, and breach of contract and deceptive trade practices...

My name is Sidd Rao and I am a trial lawyer with a practice focused on unlawful workplace discrimination and retaliation, sexual harassment, employee rights under the Family Medical Leave Act, whistleblower's rights, failures to hire or promote, claims for unpaid wages, including exempt/non-exempt misclassifications, overtime, and minimum wage litigation, and breach of contract and deceptive trade practices.

I represent executives in negotiating employment contracts, consultant agreements, and severance packages. I represent individuals in Texas Workforce Commission unemployment hearings and assist clients with charges of discrimination and retaliation before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"). If you feel you are being discriminated against, retaliated against, or denied your rights in the workplace, if you feel you are not being paid correctly, if you have an appeal hearing with the Texas Workforce Commission, if you need help navigating the EEOC process, or if you received your "Right to Sue" and don't know what to do, I am here for you.

I have litigated cases in both State and Federal Court, including a recent victory as the lead attorney for a disabled telemarketer in which I secured a jury verdict in excess of five years' salary for my client. I am just as comfortable negotiating top dollar for your claims prior to litigation as I am arguing for your rights at trial. I will work with you to determine what claims you may have, help you file with the required State and Federal agencies, and represent you in Court to ensure that your rights are vindicated. If you want an attorney who can guide you through all stages of the legal process, I am here for you.

I am active in my legal community, serving as the Treasurer of the Houston chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association and as a Council member of the Houston Bar Association - Labor and Employment Section. Prior to joining Shellist | Lazarz | Slobin, I represented clients in commercial and business matters. I have tutored law students in the law of contracts and I am also experienced in corporate compliance matters as well as the Texas deregulated retail electricity market, including consumer complaints and regulatory compliance.

My guiding passion is the righting of wrongs. I believe that the color of one's skin, the gender of one's birth, one's age, one's disabilities, and one's other immutable characteristics should not define one's ability to be treated fairly in a free society. I believe wholeheartedly in each and every one of my clients and other attorneys know that when I call them about a case, it is because I, personally, believe that injustice was done. I am relentless in the pursuit of truth and it would be my honor to discuss your case with you to see if I can help you as I have helped many others. Please call me at 713-621-2277 or email me at srao@eeoc.net so that we can explore whether Shellist | Lazarz | Slobin can assist you.
