Representation in Legal Disputes
The firm represents employers who find themselves thrust into the legal system - dealing directly with government agencies and claimants’ attorneys, providing realistic assessment of client obligations and rights, and helping each client to present its best case.
Even Diligent Businesses May Face Legal Action
Occasionally even the most diligent businesses will face a charge, a claim, a government agency investigation, or a lawsuit. Elizabeth’s litigation experience has involved defending a broad range of statutory and common law employment claims, with special emphasis on retaliation and claims under the ADA, ADEA, FMLA, FLSA, TCHRA, and Title VII.
Her practice also includes a long history of effectively representing businesses in government investigations and audits conducted by the DOL, EEOC, OSHA, and the Texas Workforce Commission.
Start with Retaining Good Counsel
Regardless of the forum, the client will be provided with information about its legal options, advice about the kinds of evidence to marshal and protect, and a guide through the end of the process as the charge, audit, or investigation presents unexpected demands and twists and turns. Business interests are better served by retaining good counsel at the start of a legal action, rather than operating based on guesswork and regretting that only after committing significant errors.
