Knowledgeable Counseling On Severance Agreements

Whether you are an employee or an employer, it is important to ensure that a severance agreement clearly addresses the reason for terminating employment and provides adequate compensation for job loss. Without these key features, an employee may feel slighted or that their best interests were not taken into consideration. As an employer, this could leave you open to litigation.

Founding attorney Ayesha Hamilton of Hamilton Law Firm, P.C., is a skilled negotiator and litigator who has handled a variety of employment law issues, providing counsel to employers and representing employees. She understands the complexity of state and federal employment laws, and she can help you understand your rights and protections under the law.

When you come in for an initial consultation, you will work directly with a lawyer who has extensive experience resolving legal matters. Her track record should speak for itself, but you can see it for yourself by calling her Princeton, New Jersey office at 800-742-1490 for more information.
