About Our Employment Law Practice
Our employment law attorneys represent South Florida employees, small to medium sized businesses, as well as professionals, executives, managers and human resource employees in connection with all aspects of labor and employment law.
We frequently handle employment disputes, including claims of discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation; employment agreements; non-compete agreements, wage issues (minimum wage and overtime); and Family & Medical Leave Act claims.
Our practice includes representing clients throughout South Florida with a variety of challenges:
- Addressing claims before the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) and local fair employment practices agencies
- Representation during the unemployment compensation appeals process
- Handling of civil actions in both state and federal courts
We also routinely prepare, negotiate and provide advice with regard to employment agreements, severance agreements, non-compete agreements and other employment-related documents.
For our employer clients, we provide counseling with regard to personnel and human resource matters, training to assist with compliance of employment laws, preparation of and revision of employment manuals, and defense of employee claims.
Assistance With Delayed Or Denied Disability Insurance Claims
Our legal team also assists individuals who are facing obstacles with both private and employer-provided long-term or short-term disability insurance benefits. We have a thorough understanding of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and other related legislation.
Our attorneys know the intricacies of the law and can advocate for those who have experienced delayed tactics or denied claims by insurance carriers.

While some battles must be waged to the end through a trial, verdict and even appeals, in reality it is usually more satisfying — and more economical — to work toward resolution of disputes through alternative methods such as mediation and arbitration.
