Whether you are in Houston, Texas or anywhere else, we welcome the opportunity to provide advice you need to get on with your life.

Discrimination Claims

We provide counsel for workers who have suffered from race / national origin, disability, religious, gender, or age discrimination. We advocate for individuals who have experienced sexual harassment on the job, who have been retaliated against in violation of any whistleblower act, or who have suffered reprisal for engaging in free speech. We handle cases against private and public employers—from the initial consultation to federal or state lawsuits, if necessary. We make every effort to ensure that our clients receive fair compensation for any employment-related injustices they have endured.

Executive Compensation & Severance Packages

We are proud of the range of professional services we offer our clients. We assist high-level employees with negotiations or legal actions related to executive compensation and severance packages, dealing with such matters as those related to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) and retirement benefits, stock options, insurance issues, and golden parachutes. We can help craft or review separation agreements and deferred compensation plans. We see to it that our clients are not shortchanged in terms of profit sharing, stock options, health care benefits, or pensions. Whether you are leaving a company due to a merger, lay off, change-in-control, termination, or resignation, we can help.

Administrative Hearings & Lawsuits

When conflicts arise or complaints need to be filed, we are experienced in handling administrative hearings for employees or employers before government agencies.

  • These may include the:
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Texas Commission on Human Rights
  • Civil Service Commission
  • United States Department of Labor
  • 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 the City to date.
