The attorneys at Kalniz, Iorio & Reardon are able to identify the potential causes of action to litigate a wrongful termination, provide advice on the options available to the client and ultimately pursue cases in court or before the appropriate government agencies when necessary. We have a firm grasp of labor and employment laws and can both explain the law to our clients and appeal to the law on their behalf.
We are experienced negotiators who listen to our clients so that we can understand their goals and objectives.
