We fight to obtain the wages you have earned
We have the size and resources to take on any employer.
We have an active and growing practice litigating on behalf of employees and classes of employees who have been unlawfully denied overtime pay, had their tips stolen, or were not paid minimum wage or other compensation required by wage and hour laws.
Our wage and hour team is comprised of seasoned litigators, who provide careful attention to their cases, ensuring the optimal outcome for our clients.
We have the size and resources to take on any employer, to litigate our cases through trial, and go toe to toe with the largest management law firms.
Wage and Overtime Litigation
We litigate on behalf of employees to ensure that they are paid all of the compensation that they earned. For example, we represent employees whose employers have violated federal and/or local laws governing minimum wage and overtime.
Independent Contractor Misclassification Litigation
We represent employees whose employers have misclassified them as independent contractors in an effort to evade federal and/or local laws that require employers to pay certain minimum wages, overtime, and benefits.
Class and Collective Actions
We represent groups of employees of varying sizes in both class and collective actions to address minimum wage, overtime, and other compensation violations.
