Whenever I am asked to speak in public I enjoy sharing with my audience that I do not write wills or do house closings ...but if they have employment issues relating to "hiring" "firing" or "managing-in-between" ...my message will likely hit home. I firmly believe that neither employers nor employees have an absolute lock on stupidity ...and given the right (or wrong) set of circumstances, either side will often launch otherwise avoidable disputes into outer space. In all of this ...We Can Help
