Serving Employees and Employers in Legal Matters

Serving Employees and Employers in Legal Matters

At Scott Law Firm, we are prepared to give our clients the relevant information they need in the area of employment law. If you are either an employer or employee, we are able to assist through this legal situation and can help you find the answers that are relevant to your situation. For employees who have concerns over a legal workplace situation and for employers who want information on the legal aspects of the hiring and firing process, a lawyer from our firm can assist you. We can carefully review the situation and inform you of all your state and federal legal rights. Our team can then advise you as to the approach that you should take. We are thoroughly familiar with many types of employment law, including the following:


Workplace discrimination is unlawful. This includes discrimination based on age, race, sex, religion, nationality, pregnancy status, or disability. This is found under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and specifies that employers cannot hire or fire based on those considerations.

Employment Contract
Some employees have additional job security through an employment contract. This should be reviewed by an employment lawyer prior to being signed. These contracts can be very difficult to negotiate and understand on ones’ own, and a lawyer from our firm can carefully examine it to make sure it works for both parties and does not violate any laws.


OSHA stands for Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It covers all employees and employers in all 50 states except for self-employed persons, farms that employ immediate family members, and employees of state and local governments. It covers many laws that must be followed by both employer and employee in the workplace.

Tortious Interference

Intentional interference with contractual relations, or tortious interference, takes place when an individual deliberately damages a contractual relationship and causes another individual to commit a breach of contract. If one party interferes with the other’s ability to fulfill a contract, this is a violation of tort law.

Wage and Overtime Disputes

Wage and Overtime Disputes

Wage-overtime disputes are governed under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Under this act, employees are entitled to specific rights and protections, which means that employers who violate this act are liable for their wrongdoing. Employers must abide by certain requirements, and if they do not, then they could face serious problems.


A whistleblower is an individual who discloses information that he or she believes shows dishonest or illegal misconduct. This information should be reasonably believed to show an evidence of gross mismanagement, an abuse of authority of employer, a violation of a law or regulation, or a substantial danger to public health or safety. There are laws to protect whistle blowers, including the United States False Claims Act revised in 1986.

Wrongful Termination

Employees are protected from wrongful termination from their employer. There are many circumstances that you cannot be fired for, such as filing a claim for discrimination, claiming to have been sexually harassed, or becoming pregnant.

We work hard to get you justiceAt Scott Law Firm, we pride ourselves on providing experience and tenacity when defending your rights. For those who are charged with criminal offenses, our firm strives to protect their rights with all the tools we have available. When dealing with a criminal offense, whether the situation involves speeding, a traffic ticket, or a more-serious situation, you may be facing severe penalties. We handle minor misdemeanors to serious felony offenses, such as DWIs and drug-related cases. All defendants face the threat of crippling fines and a long imprisonment sentence, and therefore, it is vital to get legal assistance as soon as possible. At Scott Law Firm, we can help you in all of the following types of cases:

Domestic Violence

Violence within the home or between two people in an intimate relationship is a very serious crime, but it is often difficult to defend because there are rarely witnesses to the event. Abuse can be of a physical, sexual, emotional, or even financial nature.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes include drug possession, trafficking, distribution, and manufacturing. Each crime has its own penalties and circumstances but they all involve illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroin.


Those who choose to drink and drive are committing a serious crime that is called driving under the influence (DUI). Doing so can cause serious injuries to others on the road, and therefore, this crime is heavily penalized.


Expungement is the process of sealing prior criminal convictions. When this takes place, the records are unavailable through state or federal repositories. This option is not available to everyone, but is a profitable civil action that can take place with the help of a criminal defense attorney.

Juvenile Crimes

Those who are considered minors and commit a serious crime are called juvenile offenders. Juvenile crimes are typically punished with probation, community service, fines, and counseling rather than jail or prison. There are juvenile detention centers, or juvenile halls, where the court may decide to place the offender.

Parole & Probation Violation

Probation violations take place when an individual does not comply with probation terms. If the terms of probation are not specifically and accurately followed, the individual can have his or her probation revoked and will then be required to serve the original sentence in jail or prison.

Sex Crimes

Sex Crimes

Those who are charged with a sex crime can face harsh repercussions, and without the help of a criminal defense attorney, they can find themselves in dire circumstances. Sex crimes include rape, lewd conduct, child pornography, and prostitution.

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes are a variety of offenses that occur in a business or corporate environment. They can include identity theft, fraud, bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, and many others. A criminal defense lawyer can work to protect your rights in these situations.
