Whether advising a client about an employment contract or litigating a case against a private party or government entity on behalf of a client, we are known for our expertise in the fields of employment law, constitutional law, civil rights, professional negligence, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, sexual abuse law, professional licensure issues personal injury and emotional injury claims.
We represent employees and former employees in employment-related cases against private and government employers. We have successfully litigated cases for clients asserting claims of discrimination, retaliation, wrongful discharge, sexual harassment and assault as well as constitutional claims against employers who are government entities.
We represent the families of decedents in wrongful death lawsuits filed against individuals, businesses and government entities. We have represented clients in lawsuits arising as the result of airplane crashes, farming accidents, vehicle collisions, assaults and medical malpractice. The resolution of these claims resulted in significant financial recoveries for the families of the decedents.
We represent clients who have been injured due to the negligence (malpractice) of a licensed professional. We have successfully litigated numerous cases of professional negligence against physicians, psychologists, dentists, attorneys, naturopaths and other licensed professionals. We have experience addressing not only the economic losses associated with such negligence, but also the personal and psychological injuries experienced by our clients.
We represent clients whose constitutional rights have been violated by government entities. The constitutional violations we have asserted include free speech retaliation, procedural due process violations, equal protection violations, substantive due process claims, and fourth amendment claims. These cases have resulted in settlements or jury verdicts against local, county and state governmental bodies for violation of the constitutional rights of private individuals and of inmates at state and local facilities.
We represent students and their families in disputes and lawsuits against schools and other public and private organizations when injury has occurred to the child, or when a child’s rights have been violated. These cases have resulted in settlements or jury verdicts in favor of our clients. Such outcomes provide a means for the child to obtain continuing medical and/or psychological treatment relating to the injury.
We review and negotiate contracts for our clients, particularly employment contracts containing non-competition clauses and trade secret (confidentiality) clauses. We also review and negotiate severance agreements upon the termination of employment relationships.
In addition to representing our clients zealously, we serve our community by mentoring students and young attorneys and by engaging in volunteer and community service activities.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Comfort Level
- - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
Want to check lawyer discipline?
It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:
- Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
- Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
- Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
