After your employment ends, you might be wondering if you’re getting a fair severance package or if you’re getting one at all.

Having the right legal representation can help you protect your rights.

Investigating Severance & Termination Agreements

When you lose a position within a company, you need a legal team with experience and an in-depth understanding of employment law and mediation to handle your severance and separation agreements.

Every employee deserves fair treatment and compensation when they are released from a professional organization.

Whether in the context of a reduction in force (“RIF”), a reorganization or planned restructuring (“Reorg”), or an individual firing, we will investigate to determine whether your separation was appropriately carried out or if you were the victim of a wrongful termination.

No matter how large or powerful your former employer, or small your paycheck, we will offer our legal expertise to vindicate your rights if we determine that your case has merit and we have the capacity to undertake it.

Regardless of the context, we will prosecute your matter with dedication, zeal and skill.

We negotiate reasonable terms of separation and severance for employees by helping them separate from their former employer with fairness, dignity, and respect.

If, however, we determine in consultation with you that a claim must be filed, we will help you pursue the best possible outcome and terms of resolution.
