Representing Clients In State And Federal Courts
Mr. Weingarden is a seasoned litigator who regularly represents clients in state and federal courts. However, before committing to litigation, we do everything possible to resolve our clients’ concerns through mediation, arbitration or other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods. Whether we are representing employers or employees, ADR can be a more efficient and effective means of resolving conflict. When ADR is ineffective or inappropriate, we will aggressively take the case to trial to protect our clients’ interests.
Employment Contracts And Severance Agreements
In addition to handling dispute resolution and litigation, we assist employers and employees with the negotiation, drafting and review of executive employment contracts, separation and severance agreements, noncompete clauses, and related contractual documents.
