E-Mail Todd Slobin
I am Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of
Legal Specialization. Since 1998, I have exclusively handled employment
law cases. I have dedicated my practice to representing individuals with
a focus on executive level employees. I spend the majority of my practice
negotiating Executive Agreements, Severance Agreements, and Employment
Contracts. When I am not on the phone or in meetings negotiating on behalf
of my clients, I spend my time in federal and state courts, as some issues
cannot be resolved and litigation is necessary. It is my job as a counselor
and attorney to represent my clients diligently, earnestly, and with utmost
integrity. I take personal gratification is developing strong relationships
with my clients as I view every engagement as a partnership.
Regarding my skills, I am a former Chairman of the Labor and Employment
Law Section of the Houston Bar Association (2007-2008). I am a member
of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the State Bar of Texas and
the Labor and Employment Law Section of the Houston Bar Association. I
am also a Labor & Employment Law Exam Commission Member (this committee
designs and grades the Labor & Employment Law Board Certification
exam). Since 2005, I have continually received the honor of being named
a Super Lawyer® by Law & Politics and the publishers of Texas
Monthly Magazine, and I have received the honor of Top Lawyer from H Texas magazine.
I am admitted to practice law in the Supreme Court of the United States
of America, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit,
the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, the
Southern District of Texas, and the Western District of Texas, and all
Texas state courts.
In addition to handling executive cases, I handle cases under various state
and federal laws, including Title VII and Title IX cases, the Americans
with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Age Discrimination in Employment
Act (“ADEA”), the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”),
the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act, and the Uniformed Services Employment
and Reemployment Rights Act (“USERRA”). In addition, I have
handled several national collective action cases under the Fair Labor
Standards Act (“FLSA”).
My firm and its reputation are important to me. If you are considering
using my firm, please contact attorneys at any of the large defense firms
in Houston to confirm my qualifications. If you have questions or are
in need of legal advice, please call or email me so that we can explore
whether Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP can assist you.
