Class Actions, Securities & Workplace Fairness (FLSA)
After working hard their whole lives, a couple looks forward to retirement and a chance to enjoy their golden years. Wanting a better life for his son than the one he had, a father invests in his child’s college fund. A non-profit organization carefully chooses to invest donations provided by generous supporters to carry out their mission of hope and help, building a nest egg to fund their work. Then, almost overnight, the money vanishes.

Our firm also is representing people who have been taken advantage of in the workplace, through violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In these cases, employers intentionally misclassify employees as independent contractors or managers in order to reduce costs such as overtime compensation, employee benefits, payroll taxes, unemployment compensation and workers compensation.
