Central New Jersey Employment Lawyers  –  Our Job Is To Protect Your Job

The Discrimination Attorneys at Mason, Griffin & Pierson, P.C. provide services to all types and levels of employees including senior executive and management officers, blue-collar workers, women held back by glass ceilings and male egos, office staff, salespersons, executive assistants, professionals, and government officials (civil service and exempt).  The attorneys offer a wide range of services. Sometimes clients come to us with concerns about how they are being treated in the workplace, or questions about an employment contract, and we sit with them and review their concerns and questions.  The firm also consults with clients in the areas of employment negotiations, non-compete agreements and severance package negotiations.  What ever your employment concern, the firm is dedicated to protecting your job, and after an initial consultation, our clients leave with a better sense of what their options are. There are times when it is best not to get a lawyer involved beyond the initial consultation, or to keep us in the background while you work through issues directly with your supervisor or human resources manager. We are here to support you and to answer questions along the way.

Legal services include all aspects of the employment and post-employment spectrum:

The firm’s attorneys first try to resolve employee-employer disputes through negotiations aimed at producing settlements that are fair to our clients and acceptable to their employers. When the client wishes it, the firm participates in mandatory or voluntary arbitrations and mediations, with court-appointed third parties, retired judges or privately selected facilitators. The firm is aware of the costs and pressures of trial, with the attendant emotional hardships on individuals having to repeatedly re-live work experiences; and so the attorneys strive to avoid litigation where a negotiated settlement can provide a non-adversarial but fair outcome.  There are occasions, however, when negotiations are not successful. In such instances the firm is committed to aggressive pursuit of claims through litigation. Our lawyers are experienced litigators who have achieved substantial successful conclusions for clients. The firm is conversant with the rules applying to New Jersey state courts and federal district courts. The attorneys have appeared in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey in its three locations (Newark, Trenton and Camden) and travel state-wide to pursue our clients’ claims in the most every New Jersey county.

Appeals

The firm also handles appeals of court decisions adverse to employees, regardless of whether the firm was involved in the case prior to appeal. We have appellate experience at all levels of the New Jersey state court system and in the federal U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.
