Choosing an advocate who will ensure that your rights are protected in the workplace can be an overwhelming process. But it does not have to be.
At Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, we respect the needs and objectives of each individual. The attorney-client relationship should be one of trust, empathy and cohesion. It should be collaborative and built on mutual respect. Our attorneys strive for this gold standard with every prospective client, but sometimes personalities or expectations do not mesh.
Our resources are extensive, and our network is vast. Our law firm offers free initial consultations, so if we cannot handle your case, we may be able to help you find a colleague who will.
Call us today at (510) 433-1000 for a free consultation.
We are proud that the verdicts and settlements our partner attorneys have obtained during more than 60 years of combined legal practice have led to some significant changes in workplace regulations.
