How We Help Clients
Many administrative tribunals are set up so that employees can represent themselves, but this is a serious mistake. Our employment lawyers provide many valuable services for our clients.
For example, we can collect evidence in support of your claim. If you were discriminated against, then you can bolster your case with eyewitness testimony, emails, and other documents. Our lawyers can force employers to preserve relevant evidence which they might be tempted to delete.
We can also draft and file complaints in the appropriate legal forum. Many crisscrossing local, state, and federal laws apply to different legal disputes, and navigating this maze is complicated. For example, victims of workplace discrimination have the choice of filing a complaint with the State agency, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or, many times, directly with a court. We will use our knowledge to our clients’ advantage.
Our employment lawyers in Morristown, New Jersey can also protect your reputation. Many high-level employees depend on a spotless reputation as their calling card. Employee disputes can be embarrassing and damaging, but there are ways to minimize the fallout.

Every case begins with understanding the law and the evidence as currently known. The law often favors employers, who take full advantage of their unfair position. We encourage workers to level the playing field by hiring a seasoned employment attorney.
