My firm has represented employees and executives for close to 30 years in a wide range of employment related matters in State Court, Federal Court and in Arbitration. I also help negotiate severance agreements to maximize any potential severance you might be able to obtain. I also provide consultations to assist you in evaluating what your employment rights are, as well as strategies and plans of action if you might be terminated, or have been terminated. Consultations are also available to answer your questions about your particular employment circumstances, and to review any documents related to your employment, or pre-employment, including: employment contracts; covenants not to compete; confidentiality agreements and non-solicitation agreements among others. You may also have questions about overtime, whether or not you are classified as an hourly employee or a salaried employee.
