Personal Injury

Picture of Employment Law

Accidents that cause serious injuries can end dreams and lives in an instant. People injured in accidents due to the negligence of others have a right to seek justice.



Employment Law

Picture of Personal Injury

Employment is vital to our financial security, our sense of accomplishment and our self-esteem. When employers wrongfully discharge employees or subject employees to unfair treatment in violation of the law, they do more than merely deprive their employees of wages — they deprive their employees of a critical component of their lives.
