Dummit Buchholz & Trapp attorneys are skillful litigators. Our attorneys advise and defend employers in employment-related issues, including contracts, wage and hour claims, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination.
If employment conflicts go to trial, we work closely and effectively with our clients to develop and implement strategic, aggressive, and well-documented trial strategies that minimize risk and maximize outcome for the client. We are experienced in pursuing an aggressive, yet cost-effective defense, but more importantly, we take the time to help our clients improve their policies, procedures and training to reduce the risk of future claims. To ensure employer practices comply with current law, we work with employers to draft and/or review employee handbooks, employment contracts, personnel policies, training manuals, disciplinary procedures, appropriate communications, and hiring and employment termination documentation. We train managers, human resource professionals, administrators and other employees regarding proper compliance with internal procedures, applicable local, state and federal laws and regulations, careful documentation, training of employees, and early involvement of counsel can mitigate an employer’s risk. With the proper strategies in place, employers can work from a position of knowledge and strength, rather than vulnerability. The firm’s highly skilled trial attorneys are equally adept in handling administrative hearings as well as client education and consultation. Our attorneys have litigated cases in both state and federal courts. Our over 40 years’ experience representing healthcare facilities has given us in depth knowledge of how such facilities operate, which knowledge is a valuable advantage in handling employment-related litigation for our facility clients.
