The Firm


The firm engages in the general practice of law. Primary areas of practice include labor, equal employment, workers’ compensation, unemployment compensation, wage and hour, administrative, trademark and education law, selected areas of tort and commercial litigation, and legislative counseling and representation.

Our Clientele

Our clientele includes individuals, labor organizations, corporations, trade and membership associations, and governmental and community entities on local, state and national levels. We represent clients in a wide range of labor matters including wrongful discharge, breach of employment contract, discrimination on the basis of age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, disability or handicap, and veterans’ status. The firm possesses extensive litigation experience in defense of corporations, labor organizations, and other entities, encompassing civil rights, the duty of fair representation, education and housing, libel and slander, defamation and false arrest, all of which may arise in the employment context.

The firm’s labor and employment practice brings it before the National labor Relations Board, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor-Wage and Hour Division, the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, state agencies charged with enforcement of state statutes in the field, and federal and state tribunals.

Mr Shine’s experience and expertise in labor and employment law enables us to provide a variety of other services. We assist clients in establishing fair and effective personnel policies and procedures, including affirmative action programs and procedures for adherence by labor organizations with the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA). Although comfortable in a court-room setting, we counsel, encourage, and assist our clients to resolve perplexing problems in the field of labor and employment law without resort to litigation. When appropriate, the firm will associate other law firms to address special problems outside the scope of its practice.

While many firms represent a certain philosophical or economic interest exclusively, our office serves a diverse clientele, bringing to the client the expertise of practitioners well versed in all phases of labor and employment law.
