Employment Law

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Providing a Cost-Effective and Solution-Oriented Approach

Sound legal advice can substantially reduce the risks of litigation claims arising out of employment decisions and the ever increasing diversity in the workplace. Seemingly simple employment and workplace decisions can have a dramatic effect on your business. A particularized legal strategy is often able to identify and limit potential exposures presented by the myriad regulatory schemes affecting every business. In the field of employment law, it is especially true that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.   

Legal analysis and advice is critical in the preparation of retention, incentive and severance agreements. Legal advice tempered by years of experience can substantially reduce the risk of employment related lawsuits and claims by disgruntled or discharged employees.

“I came to David Albright after two other attorneys told me I had no claim for wrongful discharge. David found a legal exception. Within six months, I was reinstated with full back pay, seniority and benefits. I cannot tell you how grateful I am.
