Practical, Cost-Effective Legal Advice and Representation

Business Consultation

Every business is different, but all businesses need prompt and reliable legal advice that is practical and cost-effective. We have the knowledge and experience to know what works to solve your employment law problems and to keep your company out of trouble. When litigation is unavoidable, we are smart, aggressive, and determined to achieve a successful outcome that serves the interests of your business. Whether it’s compliance, executive compensation, employment policies, hiring, firing, discipline, or one of the many other employment issues that businesses must address every day, we are here to provide you with the right answer you need so you can focus on running your business.

Administrative Charges and Investigations

At some time or another, every business can expect to be the subject of an administrative investigation, whether it is an EEOC or OCRC charge of discrimination, a Department of Labor wage and hour complaint, or an OSHA enforcement initiative. In these situations, you need legal representation to protect your rights and respond appropriately, while minimizing the interference to your business. Knowing the regulations governing these investigations is crucial to avoiding adverse findings and the negative consequences that follow. We have substantial experience and a track record of success representing businesses before administrative agencies. You can rely on our expertise.

Employment Litigation

When litigation is unavoidable, you need an attorney who is comfortable in court, knows the rules of evidence, and knows how to try a case. We have represented employers in all types of employment law cases, whether in federal or state court, and before administrative agencies such as the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, the EEOC, and the Unemployment Compensation Review Commission. As skilled trial attorneys, we know the strategies and tactics that can lead to a swift resolution and dismissal of the employee’s claims.

Fees

No matter how simple or complex the issue, we are cost-conscious while providing high quality and cost-effective representation. We are experienced trial attorneys without the overhead of larger firms. In turn, we can keep our costs down and our fees competitive.
