About Our Firm
Experienced Employment Law Firm Located in Houston with National Exposure
The employment law attorneys at the Houston, Texas law firm of Shellist
Lazarz Slobin LLP make a commitment to handle your employment law case,
and we will work hard to obtain the best outcome for you. We select our
cases carefully, so we can assure that each client receives our best efforts.
Contact our employment law firm for an initial consultation on your potential
employment law case. Whether you are in Houston, Texas or anywhere else, we welcome the
opportunity to provide advice you need to get on with your life.
We provide counsel for workers who have suffered from
race / national origin,
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
- 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.
