O'Brien Law Offices has a particular sensitivity to employment litigation because we are employers too. As such we have developed extensive experience in a broad array of labor and employment litigation and counseling.


We have represented companies in proceedings before the Illinois Department of Employment Security, the Illinois Department of Labor, in state and federal courts and elsewhere. We understand the legal requirements and economic realities each business owner has to face when defending this type of litigation. We have the experience to structure a complete and vigorous defense to these claims. We are able to put our client's interests above our own and advise the client to settle where it would simply be cost prohibitive to mount or continue an aggressive defense.


Whether it is representing companies in class actions, employment discrimination actions, wrongful discharge or other employment matters, businesses turn to O'Brien Law Offices.


Please give us a call today.

The work place is an arena that is fertile for lawsuits and administrative proceedings. Small businesses are particularly susceptible to a culture that is too casual in its employment practices. Our Firm is qualified to assist in providing the necessary structure. We have assisted clients in the preparation of employee handbooks and other personnel policies and in discipline and termination procedures.


Unfortunately, we live in a very litigious society. Terminated or disgruntled employees can easily file suit against an employer in a variety of forums. It is quite common for employees to file claims with an administrative agency (e.g. EEOC, IDHR, etc.) without having to undertake the expense of an attorney. By contrast, the employer can be forced to spend thousands of dollars in defending such claims, even when those claims are ultimately defeated.
