Northbrook Government Investigations Lawyer

It is a near-certainty that you will be challenged at some time or the other by a government agency on your labor practices, or even audited by one. When that happens, you want an experienced labor and employment lawyer who knows how to deal with agencies.

Conveniently located on Chicago's North Shore, where the Edens Expressway meets Skokie Highway.

Des Plaines Compliance and Government Investigations Attorney

As an experienced labor and employment attorney, I work with employers seeking compliance with every employee issue and every state of Illinois and federal agency:

Safe workplace issuesOccupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Rights of unionized workersNational Labor Relations Board (NLRB)

We Resolve Wage and Hour Disputes

Our goal is to work with employers to quickly resolve these disputes with the public sector.

Many attorneys take what I believe is a wrong-headed approach when dealing with government agencies, stonewalling requests for information, making agency investigations as difficult as possible. Depending on the circumstances, I recommend the opposite approach, treating government agencies with respect and making reasonable efforts to comply with their requests while strenuously advocating your position.

My reasons are simple: The government is not going to give up and go away. I plead my clients' case with vigor and a sound legal basis. The result is that the dispute is almost always resolved sooner, at a lower total cost, without penalties or delay and without personal rancor. If a case can be resolved and dismissed at the administrative level, the client will save a small fortune on fees, expenses and disruption to its normal business operations.
