Contract Review

A contract is defined as an agreement that is intended to be enforceable by law. The Dorothy Butler Law Firm ensures not only that your contract is legally enforceable, we make sure that it addresses the essence of what both parties intend to agree about so you can have peace of mind. Be proactive and consult our attorneys before entering into a contract. This will potentially save your business from bearing the burden of legal fees and litigation.

Worker’s Compensation

Most work related injuries are covered by workers’ compensation insurance and your employer has the responsibility to provide medical treatment and compensation for missed time at work. Employers are legally required to minimize safety risks and accommodate your doctor’s restrictions (such as light duty work). The Dorothy Butler Law Firm will work with you to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Wrongful Termination

If you feel you have been fired or wrongly terminated, you may be entitled to monetary compensation due to lost wages and/or emotional distress.

What constitutes wrongful termination?

  • Pregnancy
  • Firing in retaliation for taking an FMLA pregnancy or disability leave
  • Violation of labor laws, state and federal anti-discrimination laws, & oral or written employment agreements
  • Sexual harassment
  • Racial Discrimination
  • Being fired for filing a complaint or claim against employer
