Human resource management can be a high-risk area, with almost every employment decision carrying some risk of legal consequences. Our attorneys actively assist employers with both the legal and practical aspects of human resource management.

Our goal is to identify risks for our clients and to suggest timely, effective, risk-reducing alternatives before they become a problem. We help integrate our clients' unique needs into positive personnel policies and practices that meet all legal requirements. We guide clients through the sensitive process an employer must follow in order to respond to issues involving all aspects of employment law issues, including discipline, discharge, drug testing, workplace harassment, discrimination, wage and hour, employee privacy and accommodation of employee disabilities. We regularly provide on-site training to all levels of management on the best practices in confronting the many workplace challenges facing employers today.

Our attorneys also serve as client advocates in defending employer actions before federal and state courts and agencies at all levels. We represent our clients in labor matters, as well, sitting at the table with them in front-line collective bargaining negotiations. Additionally, we participate with our clients in mediation proceedings. A number of our attorneys are professional arbitrators and registered mediators of employment disputes.

Our focus is on service whenever and wherever our clients need assistance.
