George Altgelt is licensed to practice in both State and Federal Court. Prior to private practice he was a State Felony Drug Court and DWI Prosecutor.
Mr. Altgelt's practice is centered around employment law, criminal defense, business transactions, realestate, government law, corporate law, and construction/development defects law.
Questions you may have regarding an employment law case:
Has your employer discharged you or retaliated against you because of your age, gender, race, nationality and/or ethnicity?
Has your employer violated your federal wage and hour rights?
Has your employer sexually harassed you?
Do you wish to file a grievance or appeal against your supervisor or employer in order to stop an unfair employment practice or overturn an adverse decision related to your employment or termination?
If you are an employee with a governmental entity, what protections do you have under their civil service policy?
Are you an employer or business that needs advice on how to handle an employee or employment matter?
Situations such as these involve complex interactions of laws, regulations, technology and practical knowledge. You cannot trust your case to just any lawyer so choose your Attorney carefully to ensure that your rights are protected and asserted at every stage of your case.
Contact Mr. Altgelt or his paralegal Mr. Eli Barajas to schedule an initial consultation about the protection and exercising of your rights.
