We Resolve Wage and Hour Disputes

Our goal is to work with employers to quickly resolve these disputes with the public sector.

Many attorneys take what I believe is a wrong-headed approach when dealing with government agencies, stonewalling requests for information, making agency investigations as difficult as possible. Depending on the circumstances, I recommend the opposite approach, treating government agencies with respect and making reasonable efforts to comply with their requests while strenuously advocating your position.

My reasons are simple: The government is not going to give up and go away. I plead my clients’ case with vigor and a sound legal basis. The result is that the dispute is almost always resolved sooner, at a lower total cost, without penalties or delay and without personal rancor. If a case can be resolved and dismissed at the administrative level, the client will save a small fortune on fees, expenses and disruption to its normal business operations.
