Mr. Celler’s practice focuses on all areas of the employment context from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation under the Florida Civil Rights Act, Title VII, the Family Medical Leave Act, and other employment related statutes. Additionally, Mr. Celler represents individuals in whistleblower and wage and hour litigation (overtime, minimum wage, commissions, final paychecks).
Many firms charge clients for an initial consultation to discuss their claims. Mr. Celler does not. You can call him or email him to discuss your case for free.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Richard’s comment: “These events occurred in 2012. This reprimand was the only discipline I received in my 15 year career. I have never been suspended, disbarred, or sanctioned in any other manner by the Florida Bar or any other State Bar. If a client or potential client has any questions regarding this, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 866-344-9243 (WAGE) to discuss. I am more than happy to provide client references regarding my results and professionalism”
