Pittsburgh Employment Attorneys

Samuel J. Cordes & Associates has joined Rothman Gordon, PC

Your job is one of the most important parts of your life. Obviously, you need to work to support yourself and your family. In addition, you spend a good part of your waking hours at work. If your employer has unlawfully fired you or does not pay you what you have earned or if you do not receive benefits you are entitled to, these actions are unjust and can create needless suffering.

If your employer has discriminated against you, harassed you, terminated your employment illegally or refused to pay you the benefits you are entitled to, you have rights. You need a lawyer who is ready to protect your rights and take action against those responsible.

We stand up for the rights of employees. For more than 25 years, our Pittsburgh employment lawyers have been fighting on behalf of victims of discrimination; pay inequities; sexual harassment; wage, hour and overtime violations; and other employment law violations. We also represent victims of sexual abuse. We know the law, understand the legal system and are determined to get results for our clients.
