Employment Law

Employment has evolved into one of the more complex and heavily regulated areas of law. MacElree Harvey’s team of employment attorneys are recognized as having the sophisticated business and legal expertise you need in virtually every aspect of the employment relationship.

MacElree Harvey does not limit its employment practice to representing either management or employees. We have seen enough to know that neither side of the management-worker relationship has the market cornered on virtue. We take some pride in our decision that, as attorneys, we do not stand up for causes, but rather we represent clients. If you are looking for an ideology, you may want to go elsewhere.

Here, you will get our candid assessment based on the law as it is. With over a hundred years of combined experience, the attorneys in our employment group are oriented to help you make sense of the legal arena and achieve sensible results for your family or business.

We excel at creating innovative strategies – and long term solutions – because we don’t take on causes; we help clients.

MacElree Harvey attorneys represent both employers and individuals concerning virtually every aspect of their relationship. This area of law has evolved to become more complex and heavily regulated. Our employment attorneys bring over a hundred years of experience in finding the best solution for our clients.
