Fairness and Justice at Work
Leveling The Playing Field For Employment Disputes
At Filippatos PLLC, we fight for you to achieve fairness and justice in the workplace. Our firm consists of a team of dedicated professionals who strive to treat you (and each other) like family, because dealing with unfair and unlawful treatment in the workplace will often put you and your family in crisis. Through strategic thinking and tactical expertise, we forcefully leverage our advocacy skills to win innovative and compassionate solutions for your employment discrimination that are both lucrative and restorative for our clients. While many of our competitors prescribe their brand as the only approach, we reject this “one-size-fits-all” philosophy and instead strive to achieve a successful result that is most aligned with your unique needs. For example, some cases are best litigated in the court of public opinion, while others benefit most from private adjudication. Simply put, it depends on each client’s specific goals and circumstances. We believe the client’s individuality and agency are of the utmost importance in determining the optimal solution for each case.
