Attorney Paul Bennett has been practicing law since 1987. He has dedicated his legal career to fighting for the rights of clients in employment law and personal injury cases. From 1987-1996, insurance companies hired him to defend personal injury cases and, through this experience, he came to understand how insurance companies evaluate personal injury claims.

Employment law attorneys represent you when you believe your employer has violated laws designed to protect employees. Call us to discuss your case. We represent workers in a number of different circumstances –

  • Federal employment law violations (civil rights, discrimination, Family Leave Act and more)
  • Federal employee legal claims, hearings and appeals (EEO, DOHA, MSPB and more)
  • State employment law infractions (wrongful termination; wage and hour violations, severance and others)

Employment law lawyers are your advocate against unfair or unlawful treatment. You may be entitled to compensation. The outcome may be a more satisfactory resolution to your workplace issue. Call us and speak to our termination attorney if you have been fired or laid off and you think it was for unlawful reasons. Contact Us if you believe you have been discriminated against or need the counsel of an unemployment attorney.

You will need a workers compensation lawyer if you have been injured while on company time, at a company function or on company property. These cases are extremely fact specific, vary from state to state, and have no bright lines determining who will get paid and who will not. We will take your case and make sure that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.

Our experienced workers compensation lawyers have the skill to determine the relationship of your injury or illness to the performance of your work. It may be inside the facility or outside where the accident occurred. If you, the worker, were on the clock, you are entitled to compensation. We also must determine the degree and projected length of the disability. There are several scenarios that are possible including:

  • Partial disability – You can work but not at the job you have performed in the past.
  • Total temporary disability – You could not work at all but you will make a full or partial recovery and can return to your job or work in a different capacity.
  • Total permanent disability – You will never be able to work again at any job.
  • Medical bills only – You can return to work but encountered medical bills not covered by insurance or require physical therapy over the long term after returning to work.

If you are injured while on company time, the immediate moments following the event are critical to your case. Contact Us as early as possible for a complete evaluation.

If you find yourself in need of a criminal law attorney, do not hesitate to call us. Do not volunteer any information without an attorney present even if you know you are innocent of all the charges. There is too much at stake and one statement can be misconstrued and used against you in a court of law. We will protect your rights and fight for you.

As your criminal law attorney, James Ellison will thoroughly examine every minute and every step leading up to your arrest. We will question all areas that show even the slightest doubt, any violation of your rights, improper police procedures, witness credibility and motives, and also the methods used in the gathering of evidence. If your case does proceed, we will fight for dismissal or reduction of charges. We will do all we can to win your case and prevent you from having a criminal record, facing high fines, probation and possible jail time.
