Houston Employment Law Attorneys
Protecting Employees in Texas and Across the Nation
Employees often wonder if they have been taken advantage of by their employers — and wonder what to do if this has happened.
Shellist|Lazarz|Slobin ("SLS") is a boutique employment law firm which focuses on maximizing recovery of monies owed to employees based on their specific claims. A significant number of cases involve the representation of high level executives and upper management with complex legal claims against their employers for separation pay, stock options, retirement benefits, Sarbanes-Oxley and others. In addition, we handle all forms of discrimination claims, sexual harassment, overtime suits, wage claims, and breach of contract issues. Our philosophy is to aggressively pursue each matter at all stages until the client is fully satisfied with the monies and benefits that are paid whether in a resolution or following trial. We have a wealth of experience from lawyers who truly care about their clients and have a record of success. Our lawyers have been consistently selected to the prestigious group of "Super Lawyers" in Texas which is sponsored by Texas Monthly Magazine. We creatively approach each case based on its own unique merits and factors so that we are able to obtain the results desired by our clients whether they are still employed or have been separated. We look forward to providing you with a consultation which is tailored to your needs so that we can properly evaluate your case.
If you suspect your employee rights have been violated, you should contact the Houston-based employment law firm of SLS to discuss your rights as an employee, executive, or independent contractor.
We apply our legal skills for the benefit of employees at all levels. No matter what your position or rank, our experienced employment lawyers are ready to discuss your employment law matter and explain how we can be of assistance. We are uniquely qualified to represent employees since we also represent many companies. SLS has provided legal counsel to employers on matters such as classifying employees regarding overtime pay law, complaints of discrimination, developing employee handbooks and manuals, and many other facets of employee rights issues.
Representing Employees and Employers
Administrative Filings, Lawsuits, Legal Counsel
At SLS we have handled many types of employment conflicts and we are prepared to help you find legal solutions to your employment problems. We will intervene by negotiating with your employer, filing complaints with government agencies, or filing a lawsuit if necessary. Although we are trial attorneys, we understand that not every client needs to have a lawsuit filed. We strive to resolve conflict, often finding quick and effective solutions. Lawsuits should be a last resort.
