Review Christine Reinhard

About Me

Ms. Reinhard's practice encompasses all aspects of representing employers in labor and employment matters. An active trial lawyer, she has defended employers in jury and bench trials and frequently litigates in court, as well as private arbitrations. She additionally assists employers in various preventative and non-litigation activities, such as:


  • Counseling employers on strategic and complex employment policy and contractual issues

  • Advising employers through governmental investigations and audits, including by such agencies as the Texas Workforce Commission, EEOC, DOL, and OFCCP

  • Reviewing and preparing employment contracts and non-compete agreements

  • Conducting in-house training on a variety of labor and employment-related topics


Besides representing employers in National Labor Relations Board proceedings, Ms. Reinhard also has guided employers through union negotiations and corporate campaigns. Ms. Reinhard’s representation in the traditional labor context has included both public and private entities.


Christine E. Reinhard is board certified in labor and employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Schmoyer Reinhard LLP is certified by the WBENC as a woman-owned business.
