Areas of Practice

Constitutional Law | Labor and Employment Law | School Employment Law

Constitutional Law - Because constitutional law deals with the interpretation and implementation of the United States Constitution, it concerns some of the fundamental relationships within our society. This includes relationships among the states, the states and the federal government, the three branches (The Executive, Legislature, Judiciary) of the government, and the rights of the individual in relation to both state and federal government.

We assist clients who believe that their constitutional rights have been violated. This includes the right to free speech, due process of the law, and equal protection under the law.

Labor and Employment Law - We represent employees that have suffered wrongful terminations and adverse employment actions in the workplace as well as private and public sector employers. Our labor and employment practice encompasses the following areas: discrimination, harassment, breach of contract and collateral tort claims; Advice and preventive counseling; Employee handbooks and personnel policies; Unfair labor practice proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board; ERISA litigation, including plan subrogation matters; Wage and hour issues, matters before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Merit System Protection Board (MPSB), as well as Civil Service Commissions within municipalities in the State of Mississippi that have such process of appeal for municipal employees.

School Employment Law - An employee performs a service for the employer who in turns pays the employees. The relationship between employee and employer may seem simple until you consider compensation, overtime pay, disability leave, discrimination, free speech - the list goes on. For schools, this issue can be even more complicated. The Education Employment Procedures Law of 2001 as applied to superintendents, principals, and teachers in Mississippi, outlines a procedure that must be followed by a school board in order to remove a tenured, or permanent, teacher from employment. School districts also often employee people using different legal arrangements - a fixed-term contract for administrators and an at-will status for other employees. We can help school boards navigate the legal ropes to determine the correct course of action regarding all employees.
