We devote one-third of our lives to work, as employees, independent contractors, and gig workers. We deserve to be treated fairly, regardless of our sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), age, race, religion, disability, or any other immutable characteristic. We also deserve to have our work-related contracts honored, to compete fairly, and to earn a living.
The laws that govern the workplace can be confusing and hard to navigate. I have decades of legal experience and have earned the respect of my peers, including achieving the Super Lawyers® designation for four years running.
In representing my clients, I have brought claims in federal and state courts for a range of issues. I have also successfully defended my clients against claims brought against them.
I promise my clients that I will listen, be honest and forthright, and work hard. At Munro Law LLC, my clients receive the personalized attention, responsiveness, and expertise they deserve at a boutique firm rate – whether hourly, contingency, flat fee, or a hybrid rate.
