FirmEquity focuses on plaintiff (employee)-side employment representation because we understand the impact that problems with an employer causes an individual. Because of the fact that an employer's position is one of inherently more power, combined with Illinois being an at-will employment state, employees can face many challenges and problems with their employer. FirmEquity understands that employment is a central aspect of a person's life and that problems at work can have a profound and devastating affect on an individual and their families. We work to obtain our client's goals in a cost-effective, aggressive and concerned manner. FirmEquity has an excellent track record of success and feel that representing clients is a privilege that we undertake with the utmost respect.
FirmEquity has experience in all types of employment-related matters and has represented employment clients in most of the administrative and judicial bodies in Illinois. We represent employees in cases involving protections under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, ADA, ADEA, Illinois Human Rights Act, Chicago Human Rights Ordinance, and other employment laws. We also represent clients in unpaid wage claims, unemployment hearings and appeals. We advocate for clients zealously and pragmatically, always advising and allowing the client to make all of the important decisions related to their case.
FirmEquity takes all forms of payment and never turns a client who has a legal problem away based on their financial circumstance. We truly care about our clients and their situations and are available at all times to counsel and support clients in a way that most other attorneys are not.
