Asserting employers’ rights in court and administrative proceedings
In many cases, administrative review by state or federal authorities is a required precursor to filing an employment lawsuit. Our firm represents clients before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights. Often, cases can be resolved at the agency level, saving time and expense for all involved. If the case proceeds to federal or state court, we stand ready to represent your interests vigorously. In every case, we thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances, compile the evidence needed to oppose the claim aggressively and negotiate a favorable settlement whenever possible.
