Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination is when an employee’s contract is terminated by the employer illegally by breaching the contract or by violating federal anti-discrimination laws. It is against the law for an individual to be fired based on their race, gender, age, religion, ethnic background, or disability. If you have find that you have become a victim of this particular circumstance, contact our wrongful termination lawyers today!

There have been many cases where employees have reported a discrimination incident against an employer or coworker, and as a result, they have been terminated all of a sudden for no real reason. This is unacceptable. You have rights and shouldn’t be punished for exercising those rights. This type of situation is known as retaliation, and the Civil Rights Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act and Equal Pay Act protects you from this illegal behavior.

Examples of Wrongful Termination
  • If you are participating in an investigation that is focused on the employer’s potential illegal practices, you cannot be retaliated against.
  • If you are reporting illegal behavior such as any form of discrimination or any safety issues within the company, you cannot be retaliated against.

Benefits of Choosing Us to Be Your Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Nearly 90-95% of wrongful termination cases get resolved outside of the courtroom. Many wrongful termination lawyers choose mediation or reach a settlement with the other party. That large number shows that many attorneys fail to have enough experience within the courtroom. Any type of wrongful termination is a serious matter, and you need an experienced attorney on your side throughout the entire process.

Inexperienced attorneys that have a poor trial record can actually hurt your case. If the opposing side is able to discover your lawyer’s record, they can leverage it against you and interpret it as a sign that your attorney is afraid to go to trial and lacks the proper skill set to defend you efficiently.

We regularly take cases to trial compared to other firms who have little or no courtroom experience. We are not afraid to go to court on your behalf because your rights are extremely important to us, and we work diligently to help you obtain your day in court.

We are dedicated to revealing truths, supportive to those who have been wronged, and relentless when fighting on your behalf.
