Employment document review and alternatives

Separation agreements

If you have been presented with a separation or severance agreement by your employer, we can review your agreement to ensure you understand its terms and their consequences, make certain your rights are protected, and work to identify and smartly negotiate more beneficial terms for you.

Pre-termination issues

We advise clients whose jobs may be in jeopardy for many reasons, or who may wish to plan for separating from their current employment on the most favorable terms possible. Sound legal counsel can make a major difference in the outcome of your employment separation and your future employment prospects. We can help you approach your situation smartly, counseling you “behind the scenes” or negotiating directly with your employer on your behalf to make sure your interests are protected.

Public employment/civil service

We regularly represent city, county, state, and federal workers in employment issues of all kinds, including internal investigations, disciplinary hearings, and terminations. We are experienced and knowledgeable in the often complex and difficult administrative systems and their related procedural rules involved in representing clients employed in the public sector.

Alternative dispute resolution

Where a lawsuit is not the best way to achieve your goals, we will help you resolve your dispute outside of the courtroom as well. Our attorneys have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration in employment and labor disputes of all kinds.
