Common Sense Advice and Solutions

Employees are not the same and no set of labor circumstances are the same. Jumping into litigation prematurely can result in an expensive outcome that affects more than your bottom line. Each employment issue is unique and requires a unique understanding and strategy for a sound resolution. Our firm offers skilled, experienced negotiators with an in-depth understanding of EEOC, DFEH and OFCCP programs and regulations.

“Company owners and executives come to us with ideas for managing their employment risks. We know what works and what doesn’t. I have been practicing in the employment law area for more than 30 years. There are very few circumstances I haven’t successfully handled in negotiations and in court.” Attorney Coleen F. Van Egmond
