Your Strong Employment Law Advocate
Most people spend more of their waking hours at work than in any other place. Yet many employees suffer at work. If you have been mistreated in the workplace or wrongfully terminated, you need legal assistance to assert your rights.
You can turn to James S. Brewer Attorney At Law for strong and compassionate representation. My background in both employment law and criminal law helps me investigate and pursue legal action against employers. I represent government and private sector employees in the Hartford area and throughout Connecticut.
Protecting Employees Against Illegal Mistreatment
Anyone can be subjected to discrimination or harassment in the workplace. I have represented men and women in a wide range of occupations, including police officers, firefighters, teachers, nurses, office workers and blue-collar workers. I have successfully sued small businesses and big corporations, municipal governments and state and county agencies.
I can address the full gamut of employee-related issues, including:
- Employment discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age or other protected classes
- Sexual harassment by a supervisor or co-worker
- Hostile work environment from harassment or bullying
- Disability discrimination and failure to accommodate
- Whistleblower retaliation for reporting illegal behavior
- Wrongful termination and constructive discharge
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations
- First Amendment retaliation
- Other retaliation or abuses
The Right Experience To Protect You
I have practiced law for more than 30 years. I started as an assistant prosecutor at the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey, where I tried more than 35 felony cases to verdict and negotiated hundreds of plea bargains. In private practice, I have 15 years of trial and appellate experience representing employees in administrative agency proceedings and in state and federal courts. I have represented many high-profile clients and successfully navigated the complex legal and factual aspects of all employee claims.
Every case is handled by me personally, not a paralegal or inexperienced associate. I will sit down with you to listen to your story, explain your rights and explore your possible remedies under the law. I will shepherd your case through the legal system, fighting for your rights and the compensation you deserve for the mistreatment you have endured.
