Workplace laws - Federal and New Mexico State Laws
Workplace law is tricky and the consequences of not following the law are serious. As an employment attorney, I can help. When I represent workers in harassment, discrimination or wage litigation, I only take cases that I believe have strong legal merit and I will not get paid until they receive a settlement, verdict or other award.
I also help small business owners trying to understand and comply with our complex state and federal employment law rules. I have practiced workplace law for over twenty years, including at one of the world’s most well-respected labor and employment law firms and as in-house counsel to a Fortune 500 company.
There are important reasons to get an employment attorney involved before an issue progresses too far. Call for help if you have questions about:
Employment and business contracts - negotiation, termination, enforcement
Hostile working environment
ADA (disability) accommodation and discrimination in the workplace
FMLA (family leave) rules
Employment law compliance
Background check laws
Wage & hour questions
Social media rules
Employee privacy concerns
Non-competition agreements & non-solicitation clauses
Intellectual property rights (tradename, trademark, copyright infringement)
New Mexico protections for medical cannabis use
Accidents, wrongful death, personal injury.
The types of injuries I deal with can create a ripple effect that changes everything for a whole family in an instant. I understand and have over two decades of experience fighting these fights. When I worked for insurance companies, I often handled cases worth tens of millions of dollars. When I was badly hurt in a car accident, I decided that someday, I would start my own practice to fight for the little guy. It is far more rewarding representing people.
