We level the playing field and restore fairness
The employment relationship is a form of commercial contract that is like no other.
Traditionally referred to as the “Master-Servant” relationship, the employer wields a significant amount of power, particularly as it relates to the employer’s ability to change terms and conditions of employment and terminate the relationship. The loss of employment is one of the most stressful experiences individuals will experience in their life. Privileged, empathetic and timely legal advice from a lawyer well versed in employment law will always make a difficult employment situation easier to manage and navigate.
“I am so thankful to have had Rishi represent me during my lawsuit. Going through the legal system can feel very cold and overwhelming. Rishi always confirmed I fully understood what was happening and was more than happy to answer any questions or concerns I had. Not only did he do an amazing job defending my case, Rishi was empathetic and understanding. He knew the importance for me to have my case settled quickly, and did everything in his power to make it happen. It really felt like I had someone on my side when I felt otherwise alone. I couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks again Rishi!”
