Our Practice Areas

Our employment attorneys are ready to help you pursue a favorable outcome in cases involving:

  • Discrimination: We can represent workers who have been treated unfairly by their employers due to their age, gender, race, disability, religion, sexual orientation pregnancy, and more.
  • Wage & hour: If your employer has violated Texas wage and hour laws by not paying you overtime, misclassifying you, forcing you to work through breaks, or other types of wage theft, we can fight to recover your rightful pay.
  • Retaliation: You should not be treated differently for reporting employer misconduct. If your employer retaliated against you for filing a complaint by firing you or creating a hostile work environment, you may have grounds for a retaliation claim.
  • Severance agreement: We provide legal counsel for several pay negotiation and review of severance contracts to protect your best interests.
  • Sexual harassment: If you have suffered from sexual harassment or are currently being harassed by your employer, contact us immediately to protect your rights and take legal action against your employer.
  • Non-compete agreements: Make sure that your employer is not taking advantage of you in your non-compete by having an attorney review the detail and enforceability of your agreement.
  • Family medical leave act: You have a right to take leave to take care of personal family and medical matters. If your employer has denied your right to leave, you may be able to file a claim against him/her.
  • Worker adjustment and retraining notification act (WARN): When employers choose a mass layoff, they must provide notice so that employees can make the necessary preparations. If you were laid off without a warning, you may be able to seek compensation through the WARN act.
  • Unemployment hearing: Our attorneys can represent workers during unemployment hearings and help with the appeals process.
  • Whistleblower: Do you have information about an employer's illegal conduct? We can represent clients in a wide range of whistleblower cases, including fraud related to insurance claims, tax law, securities fraud, and more.
  • Wrongful termination: While employers can fire workers for any reason, they cannot do so for an illegal reason. If you were terminated based on your race, gender, pregnancy, religion, disability, or another protected class, call us for help seeking remedies.
  • Professional athlete representation: We have experience represented professional athletes in many different types of athletic organizations. Whether you need representation for contract negotiations or everyday legal matters, we have a team ready to serve your interests.
  • Small business representation: We provide quality legal services for business owners to help them mitigate risks and pursue growth. From part-time to full-time general counsel, we have a reputation for cost-effective and results-oriented representation.
  • Work injuries: If you were injured while at work and are seeking compensation outside of workers' comp, we can help you pursue the compensation you need while protecting your rights in the workplace.
