For the Full Range of Workplace Issues.
Employers that retain consulting firms for special projects may be disappointed to find that their consultants’ recommendations and products fail to pass legal muster when reviewed by the organizations’ attorneys. Unlike other law firms, in addition to our legal acumen in employment law, the Weinstein Firm possess skills and backgrounds applicable to a broad range of business and workforce management issues. As a result, we have tackled the most vexing management problems and provided creative business solutions to employers across the country.

We understand and appreciate the challenges that employers face in complying with the myriad of laws and regulations at the federal, state and county levels. Business, government, educational institutions and nonprofits look to us to identify and help them implement best practices in management, human capital optimization and human resources.
