Asserting Your Rights and Interests

Our legal practice areas involving professional and employment relationships break down into several main topics. These include the following:

  • Teachers’ rights: Teaching is a highly regulated profession, and there are many situations that can threaten a teacher’s right to effectively practice that profession. Our founding attorney, Philip G. Villaume, has experience representing teachers involved in disciplinary, criminal, discrimination, hostile work environment, whistle blower, harassment and First Amendment disputes.
  • Defending professionals: If you practice a licensed profession such as law, medicine, other health care providers and law enforcement officials, and you are facing accusations before your licensing board, you have rights that must be actively defended at every stage of the disciplinary process. We have the knowledge and experience to help you.
  • Discrimination, harassment and abuse: Your human rights extend into the workplace, and you deserve freedom from discrimination, harassment and abuse, as well as freedom from retaliation for complaining about these forms of discrimination. We will explore all your options to responding to illegal discriminatory actions.

We are also experienced at appealing the adverse decisions of professional boards, state agencies, civil courts and criminal courts.
