Employment Law Overview

A Portland, Oregon, Law Firm Focused On Employment Law

Some law firms take an “everything but the kitchen sink” approach to law: they handle every kind of case that comes along. They will handle divorces, criminal defense, real estate transactions, lawsuits between neighbors, dog bites, bankruptcies, and employee rights, too. While that approach might help their bottom line, it’s not necessarily beneficial to clients who want someone with substantial experience and knowledge of the legal problems they face.

The attorneys at BAKER LAW PC have over 40 combined years of experience focusing on employment law, giving them the knowledge you need when facing race, age or gender discrimination, sexual harassment or a decision on whether or not to sign an employment contract or severance agreement. The lawyers also successfully help clients fight retaliatory discharges and unfair work practices, including withholding overtime pay.

If you need a lawyer who is focused on your employment law concerns, call BAKER LAW PC at 503-575-9617 or 866-605-1906 toll-free to see if you qualify for a free initial consultation. You can also contact the firm’s office online.
