With a centrally-located office in Austin, we are here for Texas employees, executives, and independent contractors in the Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio areas.

 

Some employment law firms handle everything – discrimination, retaliation, contracts, unemployment, benefits, whistleblower cases, and so on. They can spread themselves too thin, and become a “jack of all trades and master of none.” What most non-lawyers don’t know is that the law on something like a discrimination case is completely different from the law on employment contracts or overtime pay. Getting employees paid what they’re owed under the law, whether from a commission/bonus agreement, stock option agreement, unpaid salary, or overtime pay – involves a specialized area of employment law. We focus ONLY on employee compensation and contract disputes so that we continue to be the experts in getting our employee clients their best results. In fact, we are likely the only law firm in Texas that focuses on this area of expertise on behalf of employees and executives. 

 

Employment Compensation and Contract Disputes and Consultation:

 

Talk to us confidentially to see if we can help. If we need to spend time evaluating whether to take your case or not, we will typically set up a free consultation for that case evaluation. And sometimes you need one-time counseling from a specialist on your employment contract or proposed severance agreement. We can set those up quickly and easily, typically for the cost of around one hour of the attorney’s time. Even if it’s your first time contacting a lawyer, don’t hesitate. Let us know what kind of help you need.
