We Protect the Rights of Workers

Working people spend about half of their waking hours at work and when a person encounters a hostile environment, discrimination or the necessity to work some hours without pay, it can quickly impact how they feel about their job and generally make them very unsettled and unhappy.

At Rothschild & Alwill, APC, we offer compassionate, results-oriented legal guidance. We have more than 25 years of combined legal experience, and our clients are the reason why we do what we do.

Employee rights are important to us, and we take our clients' cases very personally. We will not be satisfied until we have made things right for you at work. We are excellent fighters, but we also know that fighting isn't always the best way to win.
