Employment Discrimination and Wrongful Termination
Most of us are at-will employees. You don’t have an absolute right to your job, but you don’t check your civil rights at the door when you accept a job. Discrimination at work is a serious matter, and it happens more often than many people realize. If you think you have been the victim of discrimination of any kind, call us for a free consultation.
Below are some examples of kinds of illegal discrimination and harassment at work. If you think you or someone you know has been the target of discrimination, retaliation, or wrongful termination, or who is working in a hostile work environment, call us for a free consultation. These kinds of cases can be difficult to prove but we have spent many years and many thousands of hours helping our clients fight back and reclaim their legal rights.
We handle many kinds of employment, harassment, and discrimination cases. Please see the follow pages for examples:
We represent businesses, nonprofits, and individuals involved in commercial disputes. We’ve litigated, arbitrated, and mediated disputes regarding contracts, commercial insurance, reinsurance claims, agreements with executives and sales persons, intellectual property, and other business disputes. We’ve represented small, medium, and large businesses in Kansas City, other parts of the United States, and Europe. We’re also open to alternative fee arrangements to ensure that our economic incentives line up with yours.
We represent individuals, property owners, and environmental groups in enforcement litigation under the environmental statutes, like the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act. Those who violate environmental laws steal our right to clean air and water, spoil our recreational opportunities, and gain an unfair competitive advantage. Government agencies, like the Environmental Protection Agency and its counterparts, have the primary responsibility to enforce environmental laws, but limited resources sometimes prevent them from fully enforcing the law. It’s then that citizens affected by pollution can step in and bring their own enforcement actions.
We are here to help. Please contact us

“The River as plaintiff speaks for the ecological unit of life that is part of it. Those people who have a meaningful relation to that body of water – whether it be a fisherman, a canoeist, a zoologist, or a logger – must be able to speak for the values which the river represents and which are threatened with destruction.”
Justice William O. Douglas,
dissenting in Sierra Club v. Morton, 405 U.S. 727 (1972).
