Advocates for Workplace Fairness
Integrity is doing the right thing even if nobody is watching.”
We fight for justice with honor. Whether working with a client, negotiating with an adversary, or collaborating with a colleague, the principles of integrity, decency, and kindness guide us.”
Transformation: Our society ties our basic necessities to our employment. Advocating for workplace justice, not only transforms working conditions, but it also transforms our everyday lives and material conditions, and in doing so disrupts systems of oppression.”
Our most important task is helping you identify your goals and achieve them. To do so, we bring to bear professional excellence, personal sensitivity, and constant focus on the most effective way to get you where you want to go.”
Courage: It takes courage for employees to stand up for their rights. We honor their courage by fighting hard to achieve justice for them.”
Our goal is to provide access to justice for workers whose rights have been violated. Class actions amplify our efforts because they give us the ability to enforce the rights of many workers at once.”
Wisdom: When we advocate for the rights of employees — whether negotiating, litigating, or strategizing — we rely on deep knowledge, vigor, and always, wisdom.”
We take a solution-oriented approach, striving to solve problems and enforce rights for each client, taking into account the client’s unique wants, needs, and interests.”
