Administrative Hearings, Lawsuits
When conflicts arise or complaints need to be filed, we are experienced at handling administrative hearings for employees or employers before government agencies. These may include the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Texas Commission on Human Rights, the Civil Service Commission, the Department of Labor, or the Texas Workforce Commission. When negotiations or administrative actions cannot resolve an issue, we file lawsuits in state and federal courts, including all Texas state courts, United States district courts, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court. We have won many significant successes for our clients, including a $1.3 million whistleblower verdict against the city of Houston … believed to be the largest such verdict against this city to date.
