Represents employees and small business owners in employment law matters.
Attorney Tara M. Swartz of Swartz Law, LLC has handled claims arising out of the workplace for more than 15 years. She represents employees and small business owners in all phases of litigation. Her practice includes a wide range of cases, including discrimination and retaliation, sexual harassment, violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), unpaid wages and other wage and hour violations, non-competition and non-solicitation matters, and contract and tort claims. Attorney Swartz also drafts and negotiates employment contracts and severance packages. She places an emphasis on avoidance, early detection, and resolution and believes that dedicated, one-on-one servicing of her clients is of utmost importance.
In the business context, Attorney Swartz knows that startups and small businesses have many of the same employment contract and compliance concerns as large corporations but do not always have the internal resources to assign issues when they arise. She assists small businesses in determining what they need to focus on, how to achieve their goals, and importantly how to stay out of trouble.
