Leading the way in Florida Labor and Employment Law

Florida Labor & Employment Lawyers

Floridia and California

We Litigate in Florida and California

Do you have a Florida or California employment dispute that requires litigation? Our firm prides itself on its reputation to competently litigate cases for employers and employees in matters of labor and employment law. We provide representation in cases of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, non-compete, wrongful termination, employment contracts, whistleblower and more. Contact our Florida employment & labor lawyers today. A consultation allows you to arm yourself with the knowledge of your rights under Florida, California and federal law in the workplace.

Counseling

We Provide Counseling

Regardless of your situation, a consultation is the first step in any employment dispute. This is your time. During your consultation, you can get legal advice from lawyers experienced in employment law regarding your questions about your rights and responsibilities in the workplace. Not every case requires litigation, and many times, a client may get the answers to his or her questions and concerns during a single consultation, without need for further representation. Let our Florida labor & employment lawyers help you.

Need Some One-Time Advice?

Our experience in labor and employment law litigation allows us a unique perspective to understand what both sides need, providing legal services for employees and employers alike. In addition, we provide representation and counseling for medical practices and others in the healthcare industry to ensure that they are complying with strict rules and regulations to which they are bound. We also provide guidance for non-healthcare businesses to make sure that they are HIPAA compliant. For immediate assistance, call our offices in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Florida or Los Angeles, California, today.

The courtroom is not necessarily the most fun place to be, but we thrive there. Our employment attorneys are passionate about defending our clients before a judge, bringing them justice when they have been wronged. We have a successful trial record and the experience you need. Not everyone is ready to take their employment dispute to trial. Not everyone needs to. But everyone can benefit from our affordable expertise. Perhaps you think you need an attorney to represent you in a disagreement with your employer or employee, when all you really need is some behind-the-scenes guidance. We are here to help.

At Scott Wagner and Associates, P.A., we recognize that finding a place where you can get a quick answer to your quick question is easier said than done. This is why we make it a point to always be available through our paid consultations. In talking with us, you might learn that you don’t have a case, but we can still bring you some peace of mind and knowledge of your rights. Contact our experienced Florida and California labor and employment law attorneys today. There is always a lawyer in the office ready to take your call. Call us, video teleconference us, or come in person to our Jupiter, West Palm Beach or Los Angeles offices. It doesn’t matter how; the important thing is that you ask us your questions—we are here to answer them. We are a technology-driven office capable of video teleconferencing via Skype and FaceTime as well. At the time of your consultation, come with any questions you might have—about policies, state laws, federal laws, or just general questions. From there, we can guide you to your next steps.

Think Before You Print

We Prioritize Efficiency and Sustainability.

We do law, but it’s not our only passion. One of our core values as a business is sustainability – that is why we are honored to be a Florida-registered benefit corporation – and are proud to be one of the first Florida law firms to do so. We care about the environment and take steps in our office to make sure we are following the most eco-friendly business practices. We truly believe that when we utilize technology to its fullest capacity, everyone wins. That’s why we use tablets around our office and have virtually gone paperless. Not only does this benefit the environment, it also increases our efficiency in our document management, practice management, and our communication with our clients. We have a responsibility to our environment, just as we have a responsibility to our clients, and we don’t take our responsibilities lightly.
