Our Process

Our Process

Documentation

First, your assigned legal team will gather records related to your claim, including your contract, time sheets, and communications via email or other work-related platforms.

These documents will help your attorney understand the extent of your claim and build your case for compensation.

Investigation

Your attorney and legal team will investigate your workplace claim in great detail to gather the necessary evidence.

They will look at the documents you provide and may also look at employment records, contracts, and other workplace data.

Negotiation

Your attorney will negotiate with the defense, outside of the courtroom, to help get you the compensation you may be entitled to.

If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, your attorney is prepared to go to trial and present your case in the strongest possible form.

Sylvia Herbozo, Our Client

I feel very fortunate that Michael took on my case. He saw the injustice that I experienced and did everything possible to support me. He advocated for me in ways that I hadn’t considered would be necessary. Michael also involved me in all decisions and truly valued my input. Equally important, he always showed compassion and understood how hard pursuing a lawsuit can be on a client. He made it clear that we are in this together. I could not have asked for a better lawyer and advocate.

Frequently (un)asked questions

Simply put, labor and employment laws cover your rights in the workplace. Here are some examples:

  • Employers are prohibited from discriminating or retaliating against employees.
  • There are requirements for compensation relating to meal breaks, overtime, minimum wage, etc.
  • Employers must do everything in their power to provide a working environment that is safe from hazards AND harassment.

When an employee is fired from their job unlawfully, it’s referred to as wrongful termination. We commonly see cases where an employer has fired someone in a discriminatory manner or in retaliation to an employee who was doing what they felt was the right thing.

Although there have been strict laws against workplace discrimination for years, it’s still a prevalent issue. Here are some of the most common forms:

  • Racial Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Gender Discrimination
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA).

Petty slights, annoyances, and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not rise to the level of illegality. To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile, or offensive to reasonable people.

Harassment in the workplace can be a complex topic for both employees and employers to deal with. Here are some tips to help ensure you taking the proper steps and protecting yourself along the way:

  1. Document what happened – Record when the harassment occurred, where it took place, who was involved, and how you reacted to the situation.
  2. Reach out to HR – If you feel comfortable doing so, reach out to a manager or your HR department to discuss your options. Allow them to rectify things internally.
  3. Seek legal advice – If the harassment isn’t getting resolved or you fear being retaliated against, reach out to a lawyer for guidance.
