June 30, 2016 Recently we have been seeing a rise in higher-end employment disputes involving employees who have resigned in precarious circumstances, and often abruptly. Typically, the employee has reached the point where they simply cannot take it anymore, and has resigned before discussing and solidifying their payout.

May 19, 2016 Family law is not a practice area in which we actively seek work. It is no secret that it is an emotionally-charged area that is usually far from pleasant.
