US Employment Law Attorneys - Corporate Downsizing Lawyers
Championing the Cause of America’s White-collar Workers
Huizenga & Hergt, P.C., excels in the practice of employment law, the entire focus of our practice. Our employment law attorneys have a depth of knowledge and experience few other law firms can match.
Huizenga & Hergt, P.C., was founded in the mid-1970s, before employment law was established as an area of legal practice. We soon became recognized nationally for our groundbreaking work in the area of employment discrimination and employment law. Recognized as authorities in employment law, our attorneys have lobbied Congress and served as subject matter experts for the national media and legal organizations.
If your employer has discriminated against you, retaliated against you or wrongfully discharged you, please contact our employment law attorneys today for a consultation and case evaluation. We can help you no matter where you live.
We are a national firm that has represented clients in 28 states.
We offer legal assistance to employees who have been terminated as well as to those still on the job who fear their employment is in jeopardy. Our lawyers also consult with employees to develop defensive strategies to protect their employment or prepare for litigation or severance pay package negotiations.
In addition to representing the rights of employees who have been wrongfully terminated or discriminated against, we also assist corporate executives in negotiating the terms of their employment contracts.
Responsive Client Service
When you retain Huizenga & Hergt, P.C., your case is handled personally by an experienced employment law attorney, not by a secretary or paralegal. We spend the time it takes to get to know you and your case. We will clearly explain the important areas of law involved in your legal matter and keep you informed of important developments in your case.
We provide creative legal solutions that get results. For example, a client asked us to review a non-compete agreement after other attorneys had told him he had no case. The traditional manner of evaluating the legality of a non-compete agreement involves assessing the geographic area and time period it covers. We went beyond tradition. We successfully resolved the case in our client’s favor by finding that the procurement of the agreement violated a 1917 penal statue.
From our offices in the historic Penobscot Building in Detroit, Michigan, our firm has represented clients in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
