By limiting our practice to labor and employment law issues, we have gained extensive experience with disputes that arise in the workplace.  We know what to look for and how to find the information necessary to understand these situations.

The employer/employee relationship is an important one.  Given the long hours most people in America are working, a comfortable work environment is vital.  When an employer fails to provide, the consequences can be serious and long-lasting, not just for the employee who has been wronged, but for the employer who risks losses if the unacceptable practices are not stopped.

Everyone deserves a decent place to work.  No one should be subject to discrimination and harassment, merely because of who they are or where they work.  We can help you determine whether or not your issues are actionable.

We serve clients with labor and employment law issues throughout Western New York, including Buffalo, Amherst, Rochester, Niagara Falls, Erie County and other all surrounding communities including the Southern Tier.
