Employment Law

Whether you are a family-owned start-up with a staff of six or a large corporation with more than 100 employees, our employment law team has the depth of knowledge to assist you in all aspects of employment counseling and litigation. Our experienced attorneys assess your business’s unique employment needs and provide practical, business-minded advice and counsel.

We work with clients in all areas of employment law, providing day-to-day counseling to employers on an array of human resource issues, devising proactive and creative strategies to prevent problems before they arise, and consulting on policy and benefit matters. If and when a dispute cannot be resolved informally, our seasoned litigators are prepared to take matters to litigation in order to defend your interests with litigation experience in state and federal courts and before administrative bodies.

Update Regarding COVID-19

To our clients, colleagues, and friends: The safety and well-being of our community is our highest priority. Like many of you, we are closely monitoring the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact it is having on everyone in our community and around the world. As the level of concern surrounding the virus heightens, we feel a strong responsibility to minimize any potential risk within the community. To that end, we are following guidelines recommended by the CDC – from implementing and maintaining diligent sanitation and custodial practices to minimizing person-to-person contact – while ensuring that all of your legal needs continue to be met with the same client service you are accustomed to receiving from Roberts & Stevens. At this time, our offices remain open, with many of us connected remotely. However, in support of social distancing, we are asking clients, if at all possible, to schedule phone conferences instead of coming to the office. Thank you for your support and cooperation. Let us know if you need us. We are here.
