Employment Litigation:

When Your Organization Needs Defense.

 If you are an attorney with a client who needs representation or local counsel outside your geographic area, The Weinstein Firm is prepared to assist employers requiring representation in labor and employment litigation in this area. The firm’s attorneys are licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
   We have handled employment litigation in courts and administrative agencies claims throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and, with involvement of local counsel, across the nation. Many employment matters we litigate have been referred to us from attorneys outside this geographic area. We routinely defend employers with employees working in and around Philadelphia but with corporate headquarters elsewhere. 
   Likewise, if you are not a labor or employment attorney and have an organization as a client that is in need of employment representation in litigation or before a governmental agency, the firm is pleased to assist in protecting your client’s organization. 

Drawing on our litigation skills and background, we provide excellent representation defending your interests in courts and before government agencies. Our goals are to protect your organization and achieve the best possible result in a cost-effective manner—resolving matters quickly with minimal monetary and reputational risks to our clients.

Helping our clients to avoid litigation and governmental action altogether is the firm’s top priority. We want every employer to thrive knowing that their organization is in legal compliance, working from the right policies and procedures, and having their workforce aligned with best management practices so as to minimize conflicts and risks.

But sometimes litigation is simply unavoidable despite our—and your—best efforts.

We have handled claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, violations of wage-and-hour laws, family medical leave laws, and other claims brought by current and former employees including those under statutes such as the Title VII, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, FLSA, WARN, NLRA, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, and a wide range of other laws. Whether it is a dispute involving an employment contract, restrictive covenants, at-will employment, public employment or a collective bargaining agreement, we have been retained to deal with discipline issues, demotions, terminations, and the full range of other employment actions.

Our litigation philosophy reflects our commitment to cost-effective staffing to ensure that our clients receive the highest possible value. When our clients are sued, we partner with them every step of the way to ensure that the organization’s goals are met to their satisfaction.

As employment litigators, we have the know-how to assess risk and evaluate settlement early in the litigation as well as to dispose of cases efficiently before trial through aggressive motion practice. We are long-time trial lawyers and have obtained favorable outcomes for our clients over many years and in a variety of different courts and jurisdictions.
