Attorney Leeds takes your case with the end goal of the case in mind. Attorney Leeds strives to do his best with each case because at the end of the case, he’s hoping that his clients are so pleased with his services, that they are compelled to write him an online review.Employment Law
Employees should enjoy a workplace that is free from any form of discrimination. In a perfect world, no employee would be subject to workplace discrimination. However, we all realize that we do not live in a perfect world. Unfortunately, employees still experience discrimination in the workplace and are often wrongfully terminated for reasons that are illegal under both federal and state law. Leeds Law Firm provides legal representation to individuals who have face discrimination or harassment in the workplace because of their race, religion, disability, gender (including pregnancy discrimination and sexual orientation discrimination), age and color.
Leeds Law Firm also represents individuals who have complained about discrimination or harassment at work, and then were targeted by their employer, being treated negatively because of their complaint. Often this type discrimination, harassment or retaliation is neither blatant nor overt. In fact, usually employers will use other reasons or tactics to cover up their underlying discrimination. For example, let’s say you were working at a job for 10 years without any problems and then you inform your employer that you will need to have a surgery on your knee soon. Then, after you tell them you are scheduled to undergo your knee surgery, your employer starts writing you up and eventually terminates you. Your instincts would probably tell you that something was not right about your termination; but you may not be able to put your finger on exactly what is wrong with the situation. The reality is that you may have been a victim of disability or perceived disability discrimination. To make sure that you know what your rights are in a circumstance like that, it is best to speak with an experienced Houston employment lawyer.
At Leeds Law Firm, we advocate for our clients with employment discrimination, harassment, or retaliation claims and peel back the layers of lies that your employer may be using to cover up actual illegal behaviors. The process to make sure your rights are protected can be complex: from the timely filing of a Charge of Discrimination with the appropriate federal or state agency to the litigation of your case in state or federal court.

Our skilled criminal defense attorney has successfully represented many individuals faced with criminal charges in Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas.

An unexpected accident can change your life forever.

Even if you are fortunate enough to recover physically, the damage caused by the accident and the resulting circumstances can unfortunately linger and drift quickly from a present circumstance to a future recurring nightmare.
So many questions can arise when faced with a serious accident and potential personal injury case: How will I pay these mounting medical bills? Can I even get medical treatment without having insurance? How will I pay my bills if I am unable to work for a while? What if my injury is so severe that I am never the same again? These questions are real and can be frightening if you are faced with them, do not know the answers, and do not have anyone to help you through the process. Leeds Law Firm’s experience successfully handling personal injury cases provides the understanding and advocacy that you need in a time where so many other things are challenging and uncertain. To be successful in a personal injury case, you will need an experienced personal injury attorney to establish the legal elements of your case, so that you can get the recovery you need and deserve. Of the many challenges facing the victim of a serious accident causing injury, legal representation should not be one of them.
