|Creative, Practical Advice. Knowing the law is the easy part of
our job. The more difficult aspect is applying the legal principles in
creative and practical ways, to achieve our clients' short and long-term
objectives. We take pride in our ability to meet this challenge. Before
we give an opinion, make a recommendation, or advance an argument on
your behalf, the legal and practical implications are always
considered. Whether you are an employer facing a employee relations
obstacle, or a worker facing discipline or termination, we invest the
time and energy need to get to know you, your business, and your needs,
so that we can help guide you to the solutions that are right for you.
We encourage settlement or alternative dispute resolution where that is the best course of action. If the only areas of compromise are excessive or unsuitable, we tell you so. The result is that you are put in the position of making an informed and pragmatic decision.
We are used to dealing with sophisticated problems on short notice. Whether you need an employment contract drafted, a severance package prepared, or a cease and desist order to protect your business assets, we respond promptly, skillfully and with confidence.
|Proactive Solutions. We encourage clients to seek our advice
before problems arise. Employers can often avoid acrimonious and costly
disputes through careful preparation and planning. By helping you take a
proactive, preventative approach to employment issues, we can save you
time, money and aggravation. Employees face difficult circumstances
from time to time. With our expert guidance, we can help you with
important employment decisions and can advise you on your legal options
given whatever circumstances in which you may find yourself.
Our lawyers are committed to providing individual, personalized service. We take the time to get to know you and to learn about your business or your profession. Once we understand your problem, we tell you in plain English about the legal framework, your options, and our recommendations.
We are easily accessible in person, by e-mail or by telephone. Voice mail messages are returned promptly. Because employment problems don't always arise during business hours, we make our home and cellular numbers available to clients who expect to have difficulties in the evening or on weekends.
