Compensation Disputes and Counsel

We help employees, executives, and independent contractors leverage their best result in compensation disputes.

inside.picSome well-meaning employee-rights law firms try to do everything. They handle race discrimination cases, pregnancy discrimination cases, retaliation cases, grievance hearings, unemployment hearings, whistleblower cases, and maybe some employment compensation cases. What clients don’t know is that these different types of cases often have little to do with one another when it comes to what the lawyer needs to know about the law to win for their client. In some ways, they are like a family practice medical doctor, essentially, a general practitioner for employees. While their efforts are noble, they can easily become a “jack-of-all-trades, and master of none,” spreading themselves too thin and leaving you less equipped when you go up against the company’s lawyers on a complex employment compensation dispute.¬†

Employee compensation disputes is a specific area of the law that is very different from most other types of employment-related disputes. Therefore, you need a true specialist to leverage your best result. 

At the O’Brien Law Firm, we focus on and specialize in Employee Compensation. Every week, we work to master our craft of being your strong leverage to get the money you’ve earned for your valuable contributions to your company. That’s our mission. The O’Brien Law Firm is a “master of one.”

More specifically, we’re here for you on these types of cases:

We litigate on behalf of employees, executives, and independent contractors to help them get the compensation they are owed for their valuable work. We also do short-term consultation engagements if you need advice on your employment agreement or proposed severance agreement, usually for 1-2 hours of the attorney’s time.

If you are facing any of these situations involving employee compensation, get in touch with us immediately by phone at (512) 410-1960 or start a confidential case review through the form below, so that we can get to know you and your situation.

Most of our cases where you are owed compensation are handled on a contingency-fee basis, meaning that most or all of our attorney fee compensation comes to us only when we recover money for you. See more about that on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
