Our office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. After hours or on weekends or holidays you may leave a voice mail message for any of our staff or attorneys by calling (904) 396-2322.

Our fee arrangement for services depends on the case and cannot be determined until your situation is reviewed by the attorney. Although we do charge a fee for the initial consultation, our fee for this service is less than our usual and customary hourly rate. Currently, the fee charged for the initial consultation is between $85 and $125 per half hour, depending on the attorney.  Many of our cases can be accepted on a contingent fee basis so that no fee is paid unless there is a recovery.


wrongful termination...

Wrongful termination or discharge is a general term that applies to any type of lawsuit that can result from an employer’s decision to terminate an employee. Wrongful termination complaints can range from everything to breach of contract to discrimination. In Florida, there is no general wrongful termination law or statute. However, there are many possible types of wrongful termination claims depending on the legal cause of action involved. With the exception of breach of contract claims, most wrongful termination claims require proof that the employer has terminated the employee for a reason or motive prohibited by law. For example, if the termination is due to the employee’s age, race, sex, religion, national origin, marital status, pregnancy or disability, the termination violates the discrimination laws and would therefore be legally wrongful. Similarly, if the employee is terminated because they complained about not being paid overtime compensation, this would be a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and again illegal and wrongful. If the employee is terminated for complaining about the violation of any law, rule or regulation, this would violate the Florida Whistleblowers Act and would again be illegal and wrongful. There are many other examples of possible wrongful termination that could possibly arise in the state of Florida and elsewhere. Our firm handles all types of wrongful termination claim that can be brought against an employer. If you believe you have been wrongfully discharged or terminated, one of our wrong termination lawyers will be able to help. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your potential claim or if you would like to retain our firm to represent you.
