Employment laws are constantly evolving.

 

We prefer to practice preventive legal care by providing clients training on legal and diversity issues, seminars, employment policy and handbook reviews, wage and hour reviews, along with updates on recent cases that impact the way you do business.

 

In addition, our employment law blog, Inzozi.com, allows us to provide our clients with updates on changes in the law and common sense approaches to workplace issues.

 

We want you to take advantage of our experience and implement mechanisms that will decrease the likelihood your company will have legal problems. Our clients have businesses to run. Lawsuits are expensive to defend. Those are the hard financial costs but there are also litigation-related soft costs. Soft costs are the expenses that are difficult to quantify, such as having to locate documents, testify in court and the impact a lawsuit can have on company morale.  We work with employers that see value in providing a workplace that represents the company's core principles.

 

Sometimes a legal matter ends up in court. If that happens, you will have the confidence and peace of mind that comes from an attorney and legal team have been there before. We will navigate you through the entire process from inception to resolution. Our firm is experienced in all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution, understands the value of early claim resolution and is always prepared to take the matter to trial.

Our call-return guarantee.

Give some thought to the following questions and then decide:

  • Do you want a law firm that appreciates that it can only effectively represent a client if it gains an understanding of how the client works and how internal decisions are made?

  • Do you want a law firm that limits its areas of practice to better serve its clientele?

  • Do you want a law firm that embraces technology and leverages it to benefit its clientele?

  • Do you want a law firm that will give you an upfront estimate of what it will cost to defend a case?

  • Are you looking for a law firm that is willing to consider alternative fee arrangements?

I have relied on Rod Stephens for years for advice in personal and business related HR issues. He is always fair, honest and knowledgeable. Again and again, I consistently seek him out for guidance on situations. He was very helpful helping us navigate a sensitive FMLA issue with a long-term employee. He has also assisted in reviewing company policies and was of great help in that process."
