The attorneys of Heritage Law, LLP advise our clients about the complex legal issues that lie within the employer-employee relationship. While our main objective is to advise employers about the best ways to avoid potential workplace liability to employees, we also represent employers and employees in administrative agency hearings and civil litigation on employment law issues. We offer both comprehensive one-stop counsel on the full range of employment law matters and more focused advice for clients who need help with a particular problem.
