James & Hoffman advises and represents individuals working for all kinds of employers (governmental, for-profit, and non-profit) who experience problems in their workplaces and their careers, particularly job discrimination in its multiple guises. In order to minimize disruption to our clients and their families, we attempt in the first instance to resolve employment problems informally and in creative ways that foster, rather than destroy, a viable employment relationship.
Given the diversity of our clientele and their employment concerns, there is no such thing at James & Hoffman as a “formulaic” approach to employment cases.
When such avenues are unavailable or do not produce satisfactory results, we litigate cases in the federal and state courts, before arbitral panels and at government agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Merit Systems Protection Board. Our employment litigation practice involves a wide range of anti-discrimination and employment statutes, including the Fair Labor Standards and Service Contract Acts, the federal civil rights laws, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, various whistleblower protection statutes, including Sarbanes-Oxley, and comparable employment statutes enacted by the states and the District of Columbia.
Our clients come from a broad spectrum of occupations and trades, ranging from poultry workers to federal law enforcement officers to stock brokers. Given the diversity of our clientele and their employment concerns, there is no such thing at James & Hoffman as a “formulaic” approach to employment cases.
