We provide legal solutions to your employment problems.

We represent individuals who have been wronged in their work or who are seeing the wheels being placed in motion to remove them from their work. We help businesses see around corners to assess risk, limit potential liabilities, or navigate complex legal issues that have already arisen in the workplace.

We are precise, diligent, and creative.

We carefully guide our clients through the legal process. We are frank in setting expectations because you deserve to know the full picture of your situation. We will discuss a range of potential solutions with you. And, once a gameplan is set in place,  we go after it with focus and dedication with the aim of protecting you every step of the way. After all, our job is to protect you. And our Virginia employment lawyers have the knowledge and experience necessary to do just that: Represent individuals and businesses in a diverse scope of employment law matters.

We believe in doing things the right way.

The Labor and Employment team at Pierce / Jewett believes in doing things the right way. This means our workplace attorneys will meticulously prepare your case and provide you with personalized service throughout the entire course of our representation.
