Don’t Quit Your Job If You Are Experiencing Workplace Issues
–Talk To Us

It is important if you are having workplace conflicts, including sexual harassment, discrimination, wage/hour issues and the like, NOT to quit your job. Quitting makes a lawsuit much more difficult to pursue. Instead, discuss your situation with our attorneys, who can advise you of your rights, how to document an employment claim properly to improve your chances of prevailing, and provide you with support during a difficult and often traumatic time.

You run no risk by scheduling a short case evaluation with our law firm. To ease the stress associated with an employment matter, our attorneys are available after regular business hours, if needed. We strive to work with your schedule whenever possible. We continue to remain easily accessible throughout your case, including same-day responses to most calls and emails. If you cannot reach one of the attorneys, a staff member will be happy to assist you.

Robert Tate

“I was a nervous wreck when I walked into this law firm. But I was met by the most incredible comforting ladies I have ever met. They talked to me in a way that I understood and never talked over my head. They were able to help me with my needs and will continue to help me down the road. Once you meet and work with them on whatever issue you may have with your employer they will explain and make you feel comfortable the whole time. I would recommend them 100 times over! I can’t thank you all enough for all of your help!”

Pam Anthony

“I had a difficult and confidential situation arise and needed an attorney consult with a quick turnaround. The office staff tended to my matter, quickly, late on a Friday afternoon and on Monday morning I had a meeting with Kristy Bennett. She was very kind and sharp and validated my unique circumstances in a way that made me feel heard. Quick, informative, and generous, I give Johnson & Bennett my highest recommendation! ”
