In Dallas today, “Human Resources Management” is almost totally influenced by state and federal laws, decisions and regulations dealing with employment issues. Not too long ago, that was not true. Today it is.

It’s hard to find the right Dallas labor law attorney to handle your workplace problem. You want a employment lawyer who has “has been there…done that.” Right?
Some Dallas employment lawyers ads and websites make you think fixing a workplace issue is easy, if you just get tough. Hire a labor law firm to write a strong letter or go to court and wham! It’s fixed.
It’s not that simple. Most employment lawyers in Dallas won’t tell you that satisfactorily solving a workplace problem can be rough; it can hurt more, and can be risky, before it’s fixed. It is a time consuming and, many times, an unpleasant legal process. There are many variables affecting the outcome. I know. I’ve “been there . . . done that.”
Employment problems are draining. On average, each of us spends around 9 hours a day at work. Spending that time also mulling over a work-related problem can cause you to fuss and fume and waste a lot of energy. Work related stress can cause lower confidence, poor concentration, customer complaints, and even illness. An employer sees high turnover and probably only guesses why.
Workloads and work environments begin to change and so do supporting relationships. You work harder and longer hours, but the stress is still there. Your work was once a positive, now it’s a source of conflict and unacceptable behavior. It can cause you to burn bridges and ultimately burnout.
HR is not helping.
You need professional legal help. You need someone with experience and ability. You may need a Dallas labor law attorney.
As an employment lawyer in Dallas, I understand labor law and issues. Not every labor attorney has that specialized knowledge, skill and experience.
Being a good employment attorney is not what you do. Being a good attorney is what you are.
My pursuit of being an effective and efficient employment attorney is my passion and began over thirty-five years ago. I’ve been hired to resolve labor disputes in almost every state and in almost every kind of workplace imaginable – Fortune 50 companies, government science projects, services industries, retail, manufacturing, groceries, insurance agencies and family businesses.
I understand the variables which affect solutions to employment problems. I am privileged to have been recognized as a labor and employment law expert by my fellow lawyers.
I am interested to find out if I can help you with your company’s workplace legal issue. No charge for your visit. If I can’t help you, I will help you find someone who can.
