Let us help you navigate.

Our Memphis attorneys help both employees and small business owners.  We will work to help get you results in many instances before litigation becomes necessary.  From negotiating and drafting contracts (such as noncompete agreements, employment handbooks, severance agreements, etc.) to litigating complex matters such as wage and hour collective actions, our firm will help you navigate your workplace issues.  Our practice areas cover a broad range of topics affecting businesses today, including: appellate practice, civil rights, contracts, defamation and slander, discrimination, equal pay issues, medical leave (FMLA), non-compete agreements, sexual harassment and hostile work environment claims, wage and hour issues (such as failure to pay overtime, misclassification as an independent contractor rather than a W-2 employee), and wrongful discharge matters.

For businesses, our attorneys can perform compliance audits to make sure your business is protected before an issue arises.  We draft employee handbooks, negotiate and draft clear and concise contracts, and help strategize in the event that litigation is inevitable.  If your particular problem is not listed, feel free to call our attorneys anyway.  We may be able to recommend another local Memphis attorney who can assist you.

We are licensed to practice in the State of Tennessee as well as the State of Mississippi.  We are also admitted to practice in the federal district courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Mississippi and the Western and Middle Districts of Tennessee as well as the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals (covers Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana), the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals (covers Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan), and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeal (covers Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin).  Additionally, we are admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.
