Labor & employment

With a team of lawyers experienced in every aspect of labor and employment law, Beckman Lawson represents employers of all sizes, executives, and business owners in matters that range from strategic HR planning and policy development to representation before courts and government agencies.  We’re often called to advise on day-to-day issues because we know the law, we know our clients, and we understand how to serve their needs.

Our lawyers are admitted to practice in several states. We represent our clients in state and federal courts and before various govenment agencies, including the EEOC, Department of Labor, Department of Justice, National Labor Relations Board, and the Department of Homeland Security, to name a few.
