Qualified Legal Representation
A lack of knowledge, inadequate internal policies and failure to keep accurate records can result in noncompliance with many state and federal employment laws. The penalties for noncompliance often include steep fines ranging from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars. An audit that uncovers serious noncompliance issues can also result in criminal prosecution if it is believed the employer willfully and intentionally engaged in illegal acts.

We are efficient and resourceful, and can be depended on for sound legal advice and unwavering advocacy.
