We also serve our clients in all facets of labor and personnel matters.

When conflicts arise we represent our clients in all labor-related litigation, including grievance arbitrations, increment withholding, tenure dismissal/appeals, EEOC/civil rights matters, Unfair Practice and other proceedings before PERC, and wage-and-hour matters before the Department of Labor. We also handle all phases of special education litigation, classification and placement appeals, bidding contests, construction-related issues and injunctions.
