O’Brien Law Firm – Texas Employment Lawyer
With offices in Austin and Dallas, we are here for Texas employees, executives and independent contractors.
This law firm never represents employers in employment disputes. Just you.
You may have been wrongfully terminated and need to know your rights – and whether you can take action to recover your financial losses and hold the company accountable.
You may have been presented with a severance agreement and need to know whether to sign it, try to negotiate a better deal – or not sign it and take action against the employer.
You may be suffering from illegal harassment or discrimination at work and need to know whether it’s time to take the situation to the EEOC.
You may have been denied money that you’re owed – anywhere from unpaid overtime wages, to bonuses and commissions, to advanced compensation owed under an executive compensation contract.
You may be under stress about your employment-related situation, and need to get some answers and a strategy.
