    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 in 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® (a Thomson Reuters service) and I received the honor of Top Lawyer from H Texas magazine in 2013. In 2013, 2014, and 2015 I also received the Top Lawyers honor in the Best of Houstonia issues of Houstonia Magazine, sponsored by Green Bank, and I was a Texas Bar Foundation Fellow in 2015-2016.

    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 Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, the Northern 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.
